Delicious bacon, egg & cheese pie

This is a great meal for lunch or dinner and it could even be an unusual dish served for breakfast or brunch.

It is very easy to make and has quite a rich taste.

Cut slice of the pie

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
Makes: 3-4 servings

1 Puff pastry sheet
200 g full-fat sour cream, or creme fraiche
180 g grated vintage cheese
1 egg plus 2 egg yolks
2 bacon rashers or 6 pieces shortcut bacon, chopped
2 tsp fresh thyme leaves or 1 tsp dried

I prefer to brown the bacon a bit first, and then get rid of all the fat, however this step is not necessary if you want to save time.

Chopped shortcut bacon which has less fat than rashers

When the bacon is slightly browned, mop up the fat or put it on paper towel.

Part cooked bacon

Preheat the oven to 200C, and line a pie dish with baking paper.

Mix together the sour cream, egg and yolks (Mine were both double yolks!).

Mixing egg and sour cream

Add the cheese, bacon and thyme.

Balance of ingredients now added

Mix this up.

Spread the pastry over the pie dish -I always make mine a bit thinner by rolling it, and leave bits at the side.

Pastry ready for filling

Spread the egg mixture over the pastry, leave a bit clear at the edges.

Liquid will ooze to the edges

Slightly fold over the uneven edges, and brush some milk over them or use some of the liquid left in the bottom of the mixing dish.

Doesn't matter that edges are uneven

Bake in the oven for about 15 minutes.

Slice the pie and serve with salad of your choice.
