It’s been a long time family favourite the ‘egg and bacon pie’ my mum calls it! It’s simple, delicious and great as leftovers the next day or two! I recall many evenings mum would have them already baked ready to to reheat and eat after a day at school. Then I moved out and started making my own! I even made this ‘pie’ for a friend on her wedding at so we could eat something nutritious before the festivities… And champagne! I make it oftentimes to cut up and have a piece for breakfast.
My Mums Egg And Bacon Pie
( I use the Thermomix to chop and mix mine but of course it can be done the traditional way!)
1 Brown Onion
100g of cheese
500ml of milk
500 g of rindless bacon
1/2 cup of pastry mix (can be substituted with SR flour if your stuck)
Chop onion and bacon into small pieces (sp 5 for about 10sec)
Add grated cheese, eggs and pastry mix and mix well. (Reverse, sp 3, 10 sec)
Add the milk and mix until combined and hopefully no lumps of pastry mix! (Reverse sp 4, 10 sec).
Pour into a quiche dish and bake at 160 for around 45 or until golden brown!
Serve with your favourite green salad, or in my house huge dollops of my Nanna’s home made sauce. Yummo!!
