I have seen this Breakfast Pie before but I was totally blinded by the Lemon-Glazed Donut at ;krust that I never had the time to investigate what this pie was all about. A friend and I went last week and decided to split one only because I had to have the lemon donut as well.
This beautiful pie is as good as it looks and more! It is a brioche bread with potato, cheese, egg and crumbled bacon. How can this not be wonderful? It was delicious. This is a great healthy way to start the morning; protein from the egg, a little fat from the bacon, some starch (this is healthy in my book), and a lemon-glazed donut for dessert. The donut was no longer warm so I had them pop it in the microwave which made the glaze melt a bit and the donut tasted like it just came out of the oven. I was transported to heaven once more.
