This was a weird combination of something like a quiche that I made up for dinner. For the crust, I used Emeril's recipe for a "Manly Quiche", and sort of made up the rest.
3 cups frozen hash brown potatoes
1 T. melted butter
1/4 c. grated parmigiamo
Stir together and spread mixture into a 9 " glass pie plate. Bake 23-30 minutes at 425. Then reduce oven temperature to 400.
4 slices of cooked bacon
1 large onion, thinly sliced
pinch of sugar
1 c. cream
1 large egg
1 large egg yolk
salt and pepper
1 c. gruyere cheese, grated
1/2 c. cheddar cheese, grated
Cook bacon, drain all but 1 T. of drippings. Add onion and pinch of sugar, and carmalize onion.
Whisk together cream, egg, egg yolk, salt and pepper.
Layer onion, then bacon, then cheeses over crust. Pour liquid mixture over top.
Bake at 400 for about 25 minutes.
