Next add the sautéed onions, mushrooms and/or broccoli.
Finally, put the Swiss cheese on top.
Whisk together Egg Beaters,
half and half salt (if desired),
pepper, and nutmeg.
Pour egg mixture into crust.
As a garnish, sprinkle any remaining cheese on top.
Bake at 350 F for 40 - 45 minutes or until lightly browned
nd a clean knife inserted in the middle comes out clean.
