I put a layer of cheese in the the bottom, just to coat the base, to stop the bottom going soggy. Lots of bacon is important. I lightly beat the eggs and also throw in fresh parsley and chopped spring onions.

My mum always use to lighly beat the eggs and add a little milk they would puff up really nice.

My formula for a good bacon and egg pie is plenty of bacon and egg, seasoning and some chopped parsley or spring onions. Oh, and make sure the pastry base is well cooked.

coat the bottom of the pie with some pesto before adding cheese, onion, b & e. - yum!

Flakey puff pastry 12 eggs mixed 1kg of bacon chopped
That's it! The best B & E pie!

My idea of the perfect B & E pie is whole eggs, plenty of chopped bacon. Salt and pepper. No cheese, herbs, tomatoes, onions, p- eas etc. I have often heard the advice to add cheese but didn't like the taste when I tried it. I heat an oven tray and put the pie tin on that and the base is always perfectly cooked and never soggy. Brush the top of the pie with some beaten egg or milk, cut a few small steam slits and serve with Tui tomato sauce on the side.

I fry my bacon first in a dry pan till the liquid is gone then add to the pie. Stops the pastry from going soggy.

I add very small diced potatoes

I agree! ! Plenty of filling! ! I also add cooked slice potato to mine, with cheese and tomato on top. We're not big pastry eaters so rarely put a top on it.
