Egg and Bacon Pie

What's for lunch today? One of  Donna Hay's quick Egg and Bacon Pie. This is so easy peasy and would definitely bring some smiles from your kids. What's not to love when bacon and eggs comes together! With some green veggies and a glass of cooled juice, a satisfied and complete meal in a matter of minutes!







I used a muffin pan instead of a pie tin as stated in the recipe. Greased the pan and lined with one slice of bacon, topped with the egg mixture and bake for about 15 minutes.


Butter and toast some bread till crispy, with some greens at the side and a glass of cool orange juice.


Mmmm... this is so simple and both my kids love it.




I'm linking this with "Cook Like A Star" blog-hop featuring Donna Hay as the celebrity for the month of March, hosted by my friend, Zoe of Bake For Happy Kids. Please drop by Bake For Happy Kids for the full details and join in the blog-hop! 


Cook Like A Star 



Egg and Bacon Pie
(source from lifestylefood.com,  Donna Hay)
6 rashers thinly sliced bacon, rind removed
6 eggs
1 cup (240gm) creme fraiche or sour cream (I use yoghurt)
2 tbsps flat-leaf parsley leaves
pinch of salt and coarse black pepper (my addition)

  1. Preheat oven to 180C (350F).
  2. Grease 4x12cm round pie tins and line each with 1-1/2 rashers of bacon.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, creme fraiche and parsley. Add in a pinch of salt and coarse black pepper.
  4. Pour the egg mixture into the tins and bake for 25 minutes or until the bacon is crisp and the egg filling is just set.
  5. Serve with hot buttered toast.

    1. Hi Nupur,
      You could perhaps substitute the bacon with wonton wrappers or spring roll wrappers, maybe you need to bake them a little first, just so until they are lightly crisp, then add in the egg mixture and bake until the eggs are just set! Hope this helps!
      Thank you for stopping by! Have a lovely day!
