Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Press prepared pie dough into pie pan.
In a large bowl, beat the four eggs.
Whisk in the milk (2 cups), parsley (2 tablespoons), kosher salt (1 teaspoon), and pepper (1/2 teaspoon).
Stir in the thawed potatoes (16 oz.) and grated cheese (8 oz.).
Pour the mixture into the prepared pie crust.
Create a lattice bacon crust on top by weaving 5 pieces of bacon in one direction and 5 in the other. You can do this on a surface and transfer it carefully on top of the pie, or weave it directly on top of the pie. It will submerge into the mixture a little bit- this is fine. Make sure the ends of the bacon are on the rim of the pie crust, and bend the edges in on the corners to round out the lattice (see photo)
At this point, you can place in your refrigerator for up to two days until you are ready to cook.
When you are ready to cook, place the pie on top of a rimmed baking sheet and bake at 375 degrees for 60-70 minutes, or until center of pie is set.
