Fry bacon in a heavy skillet until crisp; drain on paper towels then crumble. Sprinkle bacon over bottom of pie shell. Preheat oven to 375°.
Sprinkle shredded cheese over the bacon layer. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, cream, salt, nutmeg, pepper, and cayenne until well blended. Pour over bacon and cheese. Bake at 375° for 35 to 40 minutes, or until golden and firm in the center. Let cool on rack for 10 minutes. Cut into small squares and arrange on serving dishes.
