Press seasoned hash browns on bottom and up sides of pie plate, forming a crust. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Let cool 5 minutes. Reduce over temperature to 350 degrees.
Whisk together eggs, heavy cream and milk. Pour egg mixture into hash brown crust. Sprinkle with cheese, green onions, and bacon.
