2 (11 ounce) packages pie crust mix
2 (6 ounce) packages Canadian-style bacon*
2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
1/2 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Prepare pastry for a one crust pie as directed on package. Divide pastry into 8 equal parts. Roll each part into a 6 inch circle on a well floured, cloth covered board with a floured, cloth covered rolling pin. Fit pastry over backs of large muffin cups (3 x 1 1/2 inch), or 6 ounce custard cups; make pleats so pastry will fit closely. If using individual pie pans or tart pans, cut circles 1 inch larger than inverted pans, and fit into pans. Prick surface. Place tarts on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake until light brown, about 8 to 10 minutes. Cool 5 minutes, and carefully remove from cups. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F.
Place 2 bacon slices in the bottom of each pastry cup. Sprinkle cheese over the meat, making slight well in centers. Break 1 egg into each. Add 1 tablespoon milk into each tart. Sprinkle with nutmeg and pepper. Place tarts on an ungreased cookie sheet
Bake until eggs are soft cooked, about 15 to 20 minutes.
Makes 8 tarts.
*Instead of Canadian bacon, try using diced cooked ham or crumbled cooked bacon. Place 2 tablespoons of meat into each pastry cup.”
