waxeyed69, I haven't done so myself but I recall seeing a recipe somewhere for small muffin tin-sized pies that were pastry-less and instead of the pastry, the bacon was used to line the muffin tin.:-))

I would call that a quiche.

I guess if you line a tin with baking paper to stop the eggs and bacon stickingyou could just cook up the bacon and eggs.

On the following link is where you can see the bacon being used as an alternative to pastry, for as Brett suggests "children who don't like pastry" :-!gl=NG&feature=relmfu&hl=en-GB&v=OTKY4kmZCeo

I wonder if you could use patty paper things.

Scone dough base patted very thin, open top with sliced tomato or mushroom and grated cheese on.

bread cases as a base!

I agree it would be a quiche.or maybe a heavy style omelette or Alison Holst recipes, sure there is one there for a nice bacon and egg self crusting quiche

My mother on occasion would line the pie dish with thinly sliced potato rather than using pastry - guessing those may have been the days when she had more time on her hands or no urge to make pastry.

YES you can use those neat little silicon muffin 'tins' and just add your ingredients and finish with egg mixture. Can't exactly call it a 'bacon & egg pie' though, but close enough.We made something similar in our cafe for gluten free customers.

I make this all the time - my mother's recipe :
Grease a flan/piedish. Cover the bottom and sides with freshly made breadcrumbs.
Whisk together 6 eggs and 1/2 cup milk,salt and pepper. Pour gently over breadcrumbs.Sprinkle chopped bacon bits and chopped parsley over.Sprinkle some more fresh breadcrumbs over
Dot with butter knobs. Bake at 180 deg till lightly browned on top.

yes you can use potato cut finely or use spinach leaves which we use instead of pastry.Most just use the bacon as the pastry and drop in a whole egg
