Bacon and Egg Pie

Bacon and egg pie is one of those meals that every New Zealand kid grows up on. It's so easy to throw together for a weekend lunch, it's great cold making it perfect for picnics and it's just so simple and delicious.

Bacon and Egg Pie

Serves 4

2 Sheets of Puff pastry (I use 40% reduced fat)
8 Rashers of bacon, fried or grilled and chopped
8 eggs
4 tsp milk
1/2 Onion, finely diced

1. Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F) Line a dish with one sheet of rolled out pastry.

2. Spread the chopped bacon over the pastry base, crack 7 of the eggs over the top:

3.  Whisk the remaining egg with the milk and a bit of salt and pepper, mix in the onion and pour evenly over the top.

4. Cover with the other pastry sheet, seal the edges, brush the top with milk and prick a couple of times with a fork.

5. Bake for 40 minutes, until the top is nice and golden.
