I normally layer the veggies, meat and cheese in the pie plate then pour the egg mixture over them, but there is a lot of broccoli in this recipe so I recommend mixing everything in a large bowl to ensure that everything is well blended. This was very good. The combination of broccoli and bacon was quite nice.
