Most New Zealander’s I know love a slice of bacon and egg pie. I wouldn’t call this so much a recipe as I would an assemblage. There is nothing too challenging about making a bacon and egg pie and you probably won’t ever need this recipe. It does however hold a strong place in my heart so to me, belongs on my blog.
This recipe makes for a really quick and easy lunch or light meal. Combined with a nice salad, you have your self a pretty delicious meal. My Mum would actually be horrified I am even sharing this recipe because it is literally make and bake.
I used the very easy store-bought puff pastry (Mum would also be horrified at this) but the flaky pastry recipe in the Edmonds Cookery book is pretty easy so if you have a bit of time..
I don’t really have too much more to say about this! Enjoy.
Bacon and Egg Pie
- 400 gram packet of store-bought flaky puff pastry
- 200 gram packet of shoulder bacon
- 5 medium-sized eggs
- Salt and pepper
Roll out half the puff pastry on a floured board until you have yourself a lovely rectangle. Lift off the board and shape into a sprayed oven dish. Line the dish with strips of the bacon so the pastry is evenly covered. Crack 5 eggs over the bacon and break up the yolks with a knife. Roll out the second half of the puff pastry and lay over the pie.
Bake at 180 degrees for approximately 45 minutes.
