About This Dish:
This recipe is from a 1942 magazine advertisement for Swift's Premium Bacon. The introduction reads like this: "How bacon goes into a pie! Here, ladies, is that dream of a new dish you've been looking for... new! different! marvelous tasting! A main dish to serve your most critical friends. Its flavor depends almost entirely on the bacon you use, so be sure to get Swift's Premium. Swift's Premium is the wonderfully mild bacon with the sweet smack taste. No other kind has such special flavor, for it comes from Swift's special way of curing and smoking."
A vintage recipe for a classically simple bacon, egg and cheese breakfast pie from a 1942 magazine ad. Requires a prepared pie crust or ready-to-bake dough.

Sorry. I didn't think this was very good. Too rich.

Thumbs up from me and my friends. Made just as instructed except cut the milk back by 1 cup and omitted the sugar. Delicious! Thanks.
