I don't know about you, but at our house Sunday night dinner is a very easy going affair.
Not a proper dinner with veges and so forth.
Something easy  
and    ...quick .....
Not too much preparation....
Not too much washing up......

Toasted sandwiches....
Baked beans on toast....

But tonight I thought I'd try a new recipe for an old favourite.

Bacon and Egg Pie

I'm afraid this was all that was left by the time I thought to take a photo !

8 slices multi-grain bread, crusts removed
250g chopped bacon rashes
1 small onion chopped
4 egg whites lightly whisked
4 eggs
half cup grated mozzarella cheese
quarter cup grated tasty cheese

  • Preheat oven to 180 C ( 350 F). Grease a 3cm deep flan dish and line with flattened bread ( flatten with a rolling pin ) Bake for about 10 minutes till lightly toasted.

  • Cook bacon for 5 minutes then add onion and cook further 5 minutes till onion is soft

  • Spread half the bacon mixture over the base of the pie. Pour egg whites over bacon mixture.

  • Crack remaining eggs over mixture ( I put the other yolks in too !!) then sprinkle with remaining bacon followed by the combined cheeses.

  • Season with pepper

  • Bake for about 20 minutes

Not too much fiddling around and tastes pretty good. 

Just don't expect this sort of thing every Sunday night !!!!



  1. What a good idea saves making pastry for a quiche doesn't it?! I mus give this a go. Have you tried a bread and butter pudding made with cheese and bacon instead of using dried fruit and sugar? I'll let you have the recipe if you like the sound of it.


  2. Great Jane, I have seen a recipe in a book and wondered how it tasted. I'd like to give it a go.

  3. Yummy!
    This looks really nice Helen,
    Have you started the crocheting lessons yet?
    I hope you enjoyed your meal.
    Love Suex

  4. Ooh that sounds lovely. SImple too, thats a bonus.As you know, I am famous for my dislike of spending time in the kitchen (unless I am watching Husband cook LOL).

  5. Yummy! Yummy! I just adore bacon and egg pie. Great with a lovely green salad. Mmmm think I need a snack :) Ros

  6. Thank you so much Helsie - hubby is going to love this. He loves the old-fashioned meals, but I want something quick and easy without making pastry!!!

  7. That looks and sounds sooooo tsaty, Helsie, I can taste it now and I can smell it. ooooh! I'm going to make that! And I'll try a bread and butter pud with cheese and bacon too! Thanks, both!

  9. Thank you for sharing the recipe Helsie...that looks so good and i bet it taste like it looks...it looks a bit like a pie they serve much in Spain.....will try it!
    greetings Francien.

  10. Helsie I tried your recipe for lunch today with a big bowl of salad - I did it from memory and forgot to flatten the bread first and made mine with just cheese and beaten eggs but it was delicious and will be trying it out again sometime. Thanks for the idea.


  11. Helen this sounds really tasty and without the fuss of making pastry! Thank you for sharing. x
