Free range eggs are such a good protein. Easy to prepare, healthy, versatile and filling.

This tasty bacon and egg pie can be eaten warm or cold which makes it great to put in the lunch box or packed for a pic nic.

The secret to a good pie is to use only the best ingredients.

Only use free range eggs and bacon as they are are superior to the products that are not.

You’ll never find fresher eggs then if you raise your own hens. Hens with a natural diet and total free-range access lay the tastiest and healthiest eggs there is.

The ultimate Bacon and egg pie are a classic with crispy bacon, eggs, cheese and flaky puff pastry! Perfect for breakfast or lunch!

There are many amazing variations possible when it comes to making a bacon and egg pie. I like mine with smokey bacon, free range eggs, cheese, tomato and spinach. Other recipes have just bacon and eggs in them and other recipes with anything from relish, onion, to peas!

That’s the great thing with a pie. Just put your favorite filling inside and you cant go wrong.

Bacon and egg Pie makes amazing leftovers.

I always make extra and put it in lunch boxes the next day. Freezing bacon and egg pie is fine too. Best to freeze the pie whole as suppose to individual cut portions.

  1. A perfect brunch for lazy Sundays!

  2. I don’t have the space for my own hens, but I do have an excellent market. Market eggs are the best. What a great idea!
