Prepare pie crust. Preheat oven to 375. Bake crust for 5-6 minutes.

Chop bacon and fry until cooked. Set aside. Leave about a tablespoon of bacon grease in pan and cook chopped shallot until translucent. Add in red pepper flakes.

In a bowl, combine eggs, half-and-half, mayo, salt, pepper, nutmeg and cayenne. Whisk until combined

Place ham, bacon, shallot, and shredded cheese (Gruyere or cheese of choosing) on top of crust. Pour mixture over. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese.

Bake for 40-45 minutes or until golden brown. Use knife to check if cooked all the way through. You may want to cover outer edge of crust halfway through if starting to burn.
