Bacon and Egg Pie

Does anyone have any secret ingredients that they put in their pie, apart from the obvious.

I like the Edmonds recipe where you put in some tomato relish on top of the bacon....also a bit of grated cheese on the bottom of the pastry base stops it from going soggy.

we boil the onion and bacon abit before....friend adds very thinly sliced cookedpotato in hers ...very nice and tiny amount of chicken stock powder.Adds both beaten anda fewwhole eggs ...though breaks the yolk . Yum just what we need on this cold stormy day.

my biggest battle is the pastry, avoiding the soggy bum, what are you tips?

Put Pietin on top of an oven tray that has already been heated up...apparently that helps esp with pizzas....though haven't tried it as yet myself....crisps up the bums !

To fix the soggy bums.... put a layer of grated cheese on the pastry first.

Since I started doing this years ago I have never had a soggy bottom since.

I put baking paper in the bottom of the tin.. Then pastry then grated cheese. Then I usually put chopped onions, whole eggs. Bacon that I have cooked in the microwave to drain out any liquid. Then eggs mixed with milk and salt and pepper.Then topped with pastry again

I've found if you start the pie off lower in the oven and then move it up about half way through, the bum crisps up nicely.

update, used the cheese, oven tray and baking paper and lower down and it was perfect!Im not sure which or all were responsible, but am happy to bake them that way in the future, thanks

Awesome beebs.. Probably a mixture of both helped... I always use cheese in mine.The tip came from Jo Seager years ago.

I too use the cheese ........ I love the cheese :o)

I think when you use the cheese that it's less soggy which then makes the bottom fluff and crisp more :o)

Agree with the cheese - a spread of pesto in B & E Pie is most excellent.
