Classic Kiwi Bacon and Egg Pie

Today, I’m thankful for being a Kiwi and growing up with the classic Kiwi bacon and egg pie!

It’s a little bit like the Cornish pasty – a quick and easy solid meal that can be eaten cold and on the run. Being a Kiwi classic, more likely prepared for farmers than miners!

The recipe is very simple.

Pastry – puff or flaky is best
Mixed veg – I use peas
Egg wash for the top
Onions – not for me because I’m allergic
Pepper – salt if you wish
Cheddar or tasty cheese

Classic Kiwi Bacon and Egg Pie

Grease a pie dish. Line with a sheet of pastry. Fill with a handful of grated cheese, mixed veg and diced bacon. I use kitchen scissors for mine.

Crack eggs carefully, evenly throughout the container. You can gently pierce with a fork, if you like, but I prefer to leave the yolks whole, as is traditional. Season to taste. Top with another sheet of pastry. Brush on a little egg wash, or just milk. Whatever is to hand.

Pop in a preheated 180 degree fan forced oven for about 30 minutes, dependent on your oven. Yo know better than me how your oven cooks!

It will be ready when the pastry is browned evenly.

Lovely hot and fabulous cold too. A top picnic food. You can make individual ones in muffin tins. You can also make it more waist line friendly by leaving the bottom layer of pastry off.

Wrap your laughing gear around that! This is what happens very quickly in our house!

      Hi Mez. How’s your gorgeous tea set going? I hope it made it home safely! This pie might not be classy enough to be served with your tea set!ReplyCancel

      I’d love to hear how it went! It’s just so adaptable – my dad sometimes makes it with sausage meat instead of bacon, for example.ReplyCancel

    Being a fellow Kiwi, I’m very familiar with this. My mum used to make the best but I reckon mine is pretty close. Some Aussies have tried to tell me it’s quiche but I’m quick to put them right, ’cause it’s not that fancy! Though sometimes I slip some spinach in instead of mixed veg. ReplyCancel

      I can report that it was as equally delicious for dinner as it was for breakfast, Katy! 🙂
