Bacon and Egg Pie

There are some Kiwi culinary classics, and the bacon and egg pie is one of them – no picnic would be complete without one, and many a hurried parent has whipped one up for dinner, knowing it’s one of those dishes which will please everyone.

The bacon and egg pie was first featured in the Edmonds Sure to Rise Cookery Book in 1955, featuring core ingredients – flaky pastry, bacon, eggs, onion, salt and pepper. In the 90’s, the book changed the recipe, adding mixed vegetables and chutney. Many kiwis have a firm view on how a bacon and egg pie should be cooked and will not be persuaded otherwise; strictly bacon and egg, pastry on top and bottom, with vegetables or a hint of cheese.
