1 ready-made pie crust
5 slices bacon
1 cup shredded hash brown potatoes
1/2 cup shredded cheese
Fresh-ground salt & pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 350.
Whisk and scramble your eggs, season and set them aside in a bowl.
Fry the hash browns in a skillet, season, and place aside with the eggs.
Fry up the bacon, crumble, and add to the bowl.
Top with cheese, seasoning the mixture while stirring around until well mixed.
Using a roller, roll out the pie crust to make it more rectangular, and, using a pizza slicer, make parallel cuts into the pie crust 1/3 of the way in.
Spray your medium baking pan with cooking spray, and place the pie crust in gently.
Load your egg mixture into the middle of the pie crust, and fold in the ends, flattening it out.
Beginning with the bottom two rows, fold them in, angling them slightly upwards, to lay on top of one another, going left-right, left-right (or vice versa) and remaining in order all the way to the end.
Once braided all the way, pop into the oven until crust is golden brown, about 15 minutes.
Once removed from the oven, let cool for about 10 minutes.
Slice and serve with a pizza cutter.
