12 slices bacon, chopped
1/2 cup green onions, sliced
1 cup mushrooms, sliced
1 cup milk
1 1/2 cups shredded cheese, divided
2 deep-dish pie shells (9 inches each)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a medium bowl, add broccoli and cheese contents from package. Microwave 5 minutes or until cheese is saucy. Set aside.
In a skillet, cook chopped bacon for 4 minutes. Add green onions; cook 2 minutes. Add mushrooms; cook 4 minutes, or until bacon is completely cooked and mushrooms are tender. Drain onto paper towel over plate. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk eggs and milk until combined. Add broccoli and cheese mixture. Add 1 cup cheese. Stir to combine. Set aside.
In pie shells, divide drained bacon mixture evenly. Divide broccoli mixture evenly and pour over bacon mixture. Sprinkle remaining cheese over both pies. Bake 40 minutes. Allow to cool at least 12 minutes before serving.
Note: To keep edges of crust from burning, place aluminum foil over pies for first 20 minutes of baking time. Remove after 20 minutes and allow to cook uncovered until completed.
