Breakfast Tart with Pancetta and Green Onions

First things first, I love the Food Network.  As husband and I have lived together, we have tried to find channels that we can both watch and enjoy together.  And this channel has something for everyone.  Plus, we get great ideas for new recipes we can add to our repertoire. 

The second thing is that I am not a huge fan of eggs, (under normal circumstances, I could take them or leave them) but add a little Gruyere, pancetta, and scallions to the dish and I am first in line to try it.  Mix in an episode of Giada at Home, where I could practically taste the melted cheese, and I knew that this Saturday would call for a little experimentation.

I purchased a pre-made pie crust that you can find in the refrigerated section of the grocery store.   I also used diced pancetta from Trader Joe's. They were real time savers. Then I decided that it was time for me to man up and learn how to use the grater blade on our food processor.  And, hello!  Why did it take me to long to try it out?  I grated an entire brick of Gruyere in about 5 seconds.  Why have I been using that hand grater for so long, when I have this amazing little appliance? 

Mix it all together and bake it at 400 degrees for about 18 minutes, and you have a delicious (and very rich) breakfast.  Husband and I tried, but we couldn't wolf down more than a piece and a half each.  Easy to make, and well worth the (short) time it takes to get it together.
