Cook from a Book challenge #6

I have a small confession to make - this is not actually from a book I own - I found the recipe in the paper a couple of weeks ago - it's an extract from a new book which is called Recipes My Mother Cooked.

I thought it sounded easy and yum. And I had a friend coming over for lunch, and I happened to have a couple of sheets of puff pastry in the freezer, so the ideal time to make it!

Egg and Bacon Pie:
(Check out the puffiness of that puff pastry!) It was delicious! I downsized the recipe - which uses 10 eggs (plus one for the pastry glue!), because I don't have a pie dish big enough to hold a 10 egg pie! But it was still plenty for 6 servings, which meant leftovers the next day! Woo hoo!
Very very easy to make as well. And could easily be tarted up with the addition of other ingredients too I think. Peas or corn, capsicum, maybe tomato, perhaps some grated cheese.

And can be eaten hot or cold. Very versatile!

I love egg and bacon pie. I make mine as "impossible pie" - no pastry! MIL makes hers with shortcrust pastry and it's delicious. I have yet to try one with puff pastry.

I love Bacon and Egg Pie! We had it a lot growing up. And that is some impressive sky high pastry you have there!

It's a quiche with a crust! And made with puff pastry. My mom makes something like this, with a normal pie crust. Eggs, milk, cheese, and then whatever filling she feels like. Sometimes chopped shrimp, spinach, ham... We fill them with all kinds of things.
