- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 2 eggs, slightly beaten

- 1/2 cup cooked broccoli (chopped)
- chopped onions (optional)
- pie shell
Originally this recipe called for 1/2 lb. browned sausage, I used the bacon instead. You could use turkey sausage or whatever you like. The veggies need to be seasoned and cooked, remember we are adding flavors in layers.
I added a small hand full of cherry tomatoes (quartered, lightly sauteed in olive oil). Use what you have and make it your own.
In bowl, mix milk, mayonnaise, eggs, cornstarch, broccoli (or whatever veggies you want). Add bacon and cheese (sauteed onions if desired). I like to sprinkle the top with a little paprika for more color. Bake in 350 degree oven for 40 minutes.
I didn’t have a store bought pie crust so I made my own. It adds time to the prep but I was pleased with the results and the ingredients cost maybe 50 cents. The recipe was similar to this basic pie crust recipe but I didn’t use any sugar and instead of butter used 1/3 cup Crisco shortening. I did butter the dish.
