"This pie is great for any occasion as a man meal. Quick and easy, and in 1984 the approx cost was only $3 - $4. You can work out how much that is these days ;). This can be served hot or cold."

  1. Really quick and tasty! I used filo pastry because it was all I had and while flaky it was a nice variation. In the past I've made egg & bacon pies by whisking the eggs but thought the idea of just cracking them gave it a much nicer texture.
  2. The family really enjoyed this - very easy preparation. Served with potato gratin, steamed broccoli & peas - it was a tasty dinner. One comment however was that It may be a little salty.
  3. Coming from a quiche generation, I had never actually made an egg and bacon pie, but this one is lovely. It is very quick to assemble (God bless whoever invented frozen pastry!) and very tasty. The kids loved it. Thanks.
  4. Loved it! This was a very tasty lunch on busy day when there wasn't much time to spend in the kitchen. It was quick and easy to put together, even with the typical Dutch small pastry squares that I have to piece together jig-saw style. It was in the oven in jiffy and we could continue working in the house until the timer went off and provided us with a welcome and filling lunch. This a a tasty bacon and egg pie... and I'll be making it again. Please see my rating system: a wonderful 4 stars. Thanks!
