Instructions

  1. Unroll the pie crust and arrange it in the bottom of a 9-inch deep dish pie plate.

  8. In a large bowl, whisk together milk, eggs, egg whites, salt, and pepper.
  9. Stir in veggies, bacon, and cheese.
  10. Pour into pie crust.
  11. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean, and the center doesn't jiggle.
  12. Remove to a wire rack.
  13. Cool for 10-15 minutes before cutting and serving.
  14. Top with Greek yogurt or sour cream.
