1 (9-inch) frozen ready-to-bake pie crust 

1 tablespoon butter

1 shallot, minced

4 large eggs

1 cup half-and-half

1 tsp. everything bagel seasoning

1 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. pepper

1 6-oz. package canadian bacon, diced

1 cup gruyere cheese, freshly grated

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Place thawed pie crust in pie pan and place on baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove and allow to slightly cool.

Add the butter to a nonstick pan and melt over medium high heat. Add in the minced shallot and canadian bacon and cook, 3-5 minutes.

In a large bowl, whisk the eggs until lightly beaten. Then whisk in the half-and-half, everything bagel seasoning, and salt and pepper.

Gently stir in the canadian bacon mixture and both cheeses.

Pour filling into the par-baked pie crust and bake 35 to 45 minutes, or until just set.  Remove from oven and let cool slightly.  Sprinkle with chives and serve.
