BREAKFAST PIE : from Farm Journal’s Complete PIE Cookbook, c1965.

4.     Put the bacon into the pie plate. 
5.     Crack eggs and add on top of the bacon.
6.     Sprinkle with salt, pepper, parsley, and chives.
7.     Spoon ½ cup of condensed soup on top of the eggs in small dollops.

Serve the pie with the sauce and a salad or just tomato slices.

*The first time I made this was in August, 1993, and I marked it as EXCELLENT – a rating I give very few recipes.  

P.S.   We had it again just this past Christmas because Nicole requested it.
