  • 1-9” pie shell
  • 1 cup half and half

Arrange potato slices in pie shell, layer with bacon. Top with crumbled blue cheese. Pour in egg mixture and place in pre-heated 450*F oven. Bake for 15 minutes before turning oven down to 350°F and continue to bake until firm, about ½ hour. Slice pear in thin slices and arrange on the top of the quiche for the last 15 minutes of cooking. Let rest for 15 minutes before serving.
