6 Ingredient Egg & Bacon Pie

This pie couldn’t be any simpler to make… all you need is:

  • puff pastry sheets
  • eggs
  • bacon
  • cheese
  • milk
  • onion

… have you got those things at home already? Yay! Lets go!!!

How to make an egg and bacon pie with puff pastry

Using defrosted puff pastry sheets makes this recipe SO easy! 

To make this egg and bacon pie, you simply line a pie or tart tin with the puff pastry sheets. Fry off the bacon and onion and add to the tin. Sprinkle over some grated cheese and pour over the egg mixture. Add a bit of extra cheese on top and pop it into the oven. That. Is. It. My. Friends!

Does cream or milk work better in a quiche?

To keep things a bit lighter I generally add full fat milk to my egg mixture (*you can use light milk if you prefer), but if you want a really rich and decadent pie then you can totally use cream instead. I personally don’t think there’s a huge difference in the taste, but those of you who are massive cream lovers will probably prefer the creamier option. Either way, your pie is going to be so yummy!

Can you freeze egg & bacon pie?

Yes, yes, absolutely YES!!!! This is a great meal to cook ahead of time and then freeze until you need it. You can also freeze any leftovers if you don’t eat it all at once!

Freeze the pie as a whole (or in individual slices) in an airtight container for up to 3 months.

Just like my Mum makes Lucy! We do a veggie version now (because of my hippy tendencies) with capsicum, mushrooms and broccoli πŸ™‚ My favourite weeknight quick ‘can’t be ‘s” dinner has to be brinner! Give me some scrambled eggs with wilted spinach, mushies and toast and I am a happy girl. Oh and the boy gets to eat bacon for dinner, which always makes boys happy πŸ™‚
