Bacon & Egg Pie is an easy to make, real kiwi classic. Great for lunches, brunches, dinner or a picnic.A 20.5 x 20.5cm cake pan, or a round 23cm metal pie dish is ideal.

Preheat oven to 200°C. Roll out two thirds of the pastry on a fl oury bench to line a shallow greased23cm pie tin. Scatter over spring onion and half of the bacon, break in the eggs and season, thenscatter on the remaining bacon.

Roll out the remaining pastry to make a lid. Crimp the pastry edges together with your fi ngers andtrim off any excess. Use the trimmings to decorate the pie if you wish (attach these with a dab ofegg wash). Cut four small vents in the pastry lid with a sharp knife. Brush with beaten egg mix andbake 35 - 40 minutes until rich golden brown and crispy. Serve warm - or cold.

    Mum always told me the secret to the best bacon and egg pie, was to make sure the bacon was hot when added to the pie, and to blast it in the oven for 15mins when you first put it in, then turn it down. She makes the best pie!
