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.
