- In a sauté pan, at medium heat, add the bacon to melt the fat of the bacon without bruising the lean part of the bacon. Add onion and cook until light golden brown, this could take about 10 minutes. Arrange the onion and bacon evenly of the pre-cooked pie dough to cover the entire surface. Add the ham and the cheese.
- In a glass bowl mix the eggs, nutmeg and add a little more salt and pepper, chopped parsley, chopped garlic and the cream.
- Top the pie with the cream and the eggs mixture and fill as much as you can without putting too much and sprinkle chives.
