  1. Mix together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add water, egg, and vinegar. Mix together but do not work too much. Divide pastry into two pieces, cover and chill for 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Form each piece into a round and roll out crust on lightly floured surface. Carefully fit into two 10 inch tart pans.
  3. Blind bake tart shells in preheated oven until golden brown. Let cool.
  4. Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble, and set aside.
  5. Saute onion in butter until translucent. Divide ham, bacon and onion into two equal portions and sprinkle over the bottom of tart shells.
  6. Whisk together cream and beaten eggs. Add salt, pepper, nutmeg, basil, and thyme, and stir well. Pour egg mixture over bacon mixture. Sprinkle cream cheese cubes and grated Cheddar and Monterey Jack cheeses over the top of each filled tart. Sprinkle green onions over cheese, followed by sliced almonds.
  7. Bake in preheated 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) oven for 30 to 40 minutes. Let cool slightly, then cut and serve.

This was a delicious addition to a small brunch! I used 2 frozen Marie Calendars pie shells (to save time) and reduced the amount of cheese by half, and it was GREAT!

You were right when you said this is some work...but the crust was excellent. Great taste, I added a few things; shallots, broccoli,swiss cheese instead of cheddar. My husband thougth it was gre...

This recipe is GREAT! I have made this two years running for a senior citizen luncheon and it is now requested! I found it takes longer to bake, so I reduced the temp a little at the end and it...

Fabulous! I halved the recipe to make only one tart. I used a store bought pastry shell instead of making my own, and used colby-jack cheese. It's a great combination of flavors but the almon...

Great! And while I'm here, I have a suggestion for those who have trouble cutting cinnamon rolls: Don't use a knife! Break off a 15" piece of white cotton thread, slip it horizontally under the ...

This is a great recipe. The dough for the crust was a little wet, but working in a little extra flour made it easy to work with and it was delicious. Will definitely be making this one again!

OMG, this is the best quiche I've ever had (and I've had a few). The combination of cream cheese, thyme and nutmeg send it over the top. I omitted the green onions and almonds because I don't ...

The KING of breadfast tarts!
