That is a serious looking pie Julie. I haven't really seen an "egg" pie (AKA quiche) with a top crust. Lynn wants to know how to do the egg filling in a pie with a top crust.

I do an eggs Benedict pie, thin sliced ham, crack an egg or two, hollandaise sauce, pastry top, yummy.

So the eggs go under the crust raw? And the hollandaise stands up to the heat to bake the pastry without breaking? Hmm fascinating.

Firstly it's not a quiche. It's not made with an egg custard like quiche is, just beaten eggs. Some people like to leave the eggs unbeaten, so you get sections of egg white with the yolks interspersed but I prefer it this way. As well as bacon, lightly precooked, it has onion plus red and green capsicum, also precooked. 

 

Puff pastry bottom, some of the egg mix, then bacon and veges, then the rest of the egg mix. Topped with puff pastry. Bake at 220C / 200C fan for 40 minutes.

 

I used ten eggs but kept a bit of the yolk from one of them to glaze the top.

 

My pie dish is a recent purchase from Williams Sonoma and is bigger than standard Aussie pie dishes so standard pastry sheets are a bit too small for the base. I stick two together then roll it out to fit. I used Careme pastry (an upmarket Aussie brand) for the top.

 

Here's a photo of a section on it after it was cut.

Thanks Julie, we would leave out the capsicum. Nothing against capsicum but they have a definite dislike for both of us. I would probably put in some mushrooms instead.

Mushrooms would work well but cook them off a bit first as they can release a lot of liquid which would make the filling soggy and affect how the top pastry rises. And I don't need to warn you not to use tomato. You can use ham instead of bacon, of course.

Bacon and egg pie, just out of the oven. That's lunch sorted for a couple of days. 😊

I've never had a bacon and egg pie, but the pastry looks delicious.  Is the bacon and egg mixed up?

That’s how Mrs Gut likes hers too, I prefer the whole egg method, for mine.

I do mine in a pie maker, so much easier and quicker than the oven, I partially blind bake my pastry, then one it with ham, at the moment left over Christmas ham still, crack an egg Or two on top, hollandaise (comes out fine) then pastry top.

 

for Mrs Gut pastry egg mix. (Similar to what Julie describes) cheese, with or without pastry on top, if without some extra grated cheese on top.

 

If I don’t want to make hollandaise for mine. Just add cheese instead.

Yes, it mixes itself up quite well but to be sure I always put some egg in first, then spread the bacon and veges around, then add the rest of the egg. As you can see by the cut section it ended up being fairly evenly distributed.

 

Careme pastry is awesome but expensive, which is why I only use it for the top.

I've only just started making them again. I used to make them years ago but got out of the habit. I actually prefer them cold than hot, but we usually have the first slices hot out the oven. They were great to take on picnics.

I have taken slices on picnics too Julie. I don't mind them either hot or cold. I had a quiche Lorraine for lunch today  - made by Temptation Bakeries which is local to me and sold at Woolies, not sure about Coles. They are frozen but I have visited the bakery's shop and bought their pies and quiches sometimes. There for a while the bakery provided the muffins on Qantas flights.

Temptation bakeries do a good pork pie too, available at Woollies, sometimes I am tempted.

Well Lyle, depends on the maker, sort of chunky mince in jelly I suppose. Don't you have them in Canada. Eaten cold, very English.

We do have them Les. Melton Mowbray pies, you can get them at many places. As you say very English as opposed to the very French Canadian Tourtiere which are also easy to get from coast to coast

I don't like pork pies, but their other products aren't too bad though. Should you be tempted though Les? Gluten free? At the shop attached to their factory, a couple of suburbs from us, they usually have some bargain buys in packs.

I don't eat them post Coeliac days Leigh, would make me crook, all about the flour, wheat is a no, no. I did pre 2010 when coeliac hit me. Last time I was in UK, in 2018, I discovered gluten free pork pies, pastry made with rice flour at Marks and Spencers food hall. And on return flight via HK where we had a week, I also found the gf pork pies in M&S HK.  That is why on this meat pie thread I often put up pics of gf pies I have tried, for the benefit of others.

They are a very rich thing I have felt that anything larger than 75mm would probably set my tummy off

You need some Baxters Tomato chutney with it Lyle  and a couple of pickled onions. Really give your gut a workout.
