  2. Cook bacon, over medium heat, until crispy; remove and crumble.
  3. Pour off all but 1 tablespoon of the fat from your skillet, increase heat to medium high, cook bell pepper and garlic about 3 minutes; add green onions and saute an additional minute.
  4. Remove from heat and stir in crumbled bacon and Swiss cheese; divide mixture between 6 prepared ramekins or custard cups.

  6. Meanwhile, whisk together remaining ingredients; gradually add the hot milk, stirring constantly with the whisk.
  7. Divide egg mixture evenly among the ramekins.
