Instructions

  • Add the minced garlic, and stir to combine.
  • Remove the vegetable mixture from the heat, and set it aside.
  • Lightly oil an oven-safe pie dish with a tiny coating of vegetable oil and add the pie crust to the pie dish.

  • Add the vegetables and bacon that you cooked earlier.
  • Whisk the whole eggs, and mix them with the finely-sliced scallions and the shredded mozzarella and shredded cheddar cheeses.
  • Pour the egg and scallion and shredded cheese mixture into the pie dish, on top of the vegetables.
  • Top with dollops of the cream cheese.
