Breakfast is my family’s favorite meal.

During the week I like to keep it pretty simple because we’re all rushing to get out the door on time.
The weekends are different.

I’m definitely NOT what you would call a  morning person,
but I LOVE making breakfast.

Because this week Charlie’s math class is celebrating Pi day,
I thought it might be fun to have pie for breakfast.

Not the dessert variety;
although, Stella and I have been know to eat berry pie for breakfast.

This is a breakfast pie,
and the best part is that you can add almost anything.

I added a few leftover bell pepper strips, onion, ham, and cheese,
but the possibilities are endless.
{It’s a great way to clean out that veggie bin}

Breakfast Pie

1 9 inch pie crust {I use Trader Joe’s variety, but you can use your favorite recipe}
8 eggs
1/2 cup of sliced bell peppers and onions
4 slices of ham diced
1/4 cup of shredded cheese {I used cheddar}
salt and pepper to taste

preheat the oven to 350

saute the peppers and onion until they become soft
roll out the pie crust and place in the bottom of a lightly greased pie pan
add the sauteed veggies, diced ham, and cheese
whisk the eggs and season with salt and pepper
pour over the filling

bake for 25 – 30 minutes until the crust begins to brown and the eggs are set in the middle

While I don’t enjoy losing an hour of sleep, this was worth getting up for:)
