Bacon-Cheese Puff Pie

This recipe comes from my grandma, and it's one of my family's favorites. We love the combination of bacon, tomatoes and cheese for brunch at any time of year.

    this is so yummy and very easy to make. i added mushrooms, onions, and green peppers with the bacon and tomato and it was great! 35 minutes worked for me, too.
