Placing grated cheese in the bottom of the pie help with the sogginess... ... . . Any recipe for B&E can be frozen... depends on your likes as to what you put in it... . . bacon and eggs... ... little onion... . some cold cooked potato... ... tomato slices

I've heard that bakers use instant potato mash to stop the bottom going soggy

I always put a thin layer of grated cheese on the bottom ... I read it somewhere (Jo Seagar, I think) . . it works for me

I always use a savory pastry for the base and flaky pastry for the top.

Make sure you preheat the oven well and place a metal oven tray in there to heat. When you go to cook your pie sit it on the metal oven tray - it helps cook the bottom pastry.

I made a bacon and egg pie today and I remembered about people asking about soggy bottoms :-)
At the time I thought mine weren't because I line the tin with tinfoil, but today I did it in my temuka lasanga dish, and didn't line it with anything. Still no soggy bottom? !
I just do flakey pastry, bacon on the bottom, eggs, pepper, and more bacon.
I don't prick the bottom pastry - could that be the key?
