Followed the recipe exactly and it was perfect. Everyone loved it even the fussy grand children. So easy and it looked & tasted great. Will definitely be keeping this one. Thanks for a great recipe. Just a hint. Don't forget to grease or oil the baking tray before you put in the pastry.
so quick and easy to prepare snd so tasty loved it!!
I doubled this recipe and made it for my students, 12 rather big volleyball boys. They need something a bit more nourishing than chips to be able to play all day at the Auckland champs. This recipe will fit the bill nicely, I think. I'll update my review after the game. I cooked the onion and bacon before adding to the pie because the bacon can be quite wet sometimes. I also beat up 4 of the eggs with a little milk to pour around the other ingredients so that the whole eggs sat on top nicely. I can't remember how many eggs I ended up using but added enough to get at least one egg yolk per slice. Some boys may be lucky and get two! Thanks for posting this typical antipodean version of bacon and egg pie. I had never had whole eggs in a bacon and egg pie until I came to NZ. Update:"Choice, Miss" was the verdict. That's good, BTW.
