Actually it is *very* British and there is a recipe for it in my English cook book. My Mam made it many times. A very good pie recipe...thanks

Made with optional herbs ( tarragon and rosemary ) a small pinch of each. Wonderful pie will make again! Thanks for posting a grand recipe!

I tried it today and the shortcrust pastry worked great. I didn't have bacon or eggs, but used ground beef, potatoes and broccoli instead and it was very yummy. For my first attempt at makinig pie, this recipe is fantastic and easy to follow.

How bizarre. 13 years in England and this is the *first* time I have ever heard of this food that's supposedly on every cafe menu?

What a pie! I made two whoppers for a party I was cooking for and they were tasty plus looked impressive (if I say so myself). I froze them after they'd cooled after baking so I could just take them out the night before the party and slice them up. Easy as pie!

*Updated May 2011* I've made this a couple of times since and it's always come out really well. It's lovely cold or hot. My children love it. I usually put a bit of grated parmesan in the crust for some extra flavour. I've just uploaded a photo of my latest one which had some added brocolli.

Nice pie (savoury and rich), but hardly on every British menu- my British husband thought I had gone mad when I suggested making it (he had never heard of it), and in all my years of living and eating in Britain, I've never come across this.
