Fan bake or normal or gas? Metal,ceramic or pottery dish?

I prefer a metal dish as there is less chance of :soggy bottom" on the pastry. I do not have fan bake on my oven so I don't use it.

Holy cow only 20 minutes, it must be a wee pie. I would have thought longer. 35 to 40mins

You don't use the oven?
Or the fan bake, that you don't have?

Fan bake of course! Plenty of good bacon and egg pies came out of ovens before fan bake was introduced. I usually cook pies for 30-35 mins in an ordinary oven. Fan bake might speed up cooking times.

Mines in the oven now. 220C, bottom rung, normal bake. Pottery flan dish, 40mins.

8 rashers of bacon, 8 size 7 eggs in a tin 300x150. 35-40m on fanbake at 180.

I agree my mum had a metal pie plate that had a small holes in the base. B&E pies also came out with a nice brown crust not soggy. but in saying that she may have uses savoury short pasty on the bottom and flaky on top.cant remember that but can remember them cooking and waiting expectantly for them to come out of the oven and be handed a hot piece on a plate to devour

Eggs beaten or whole?

Also if you put an oven tray in the oven when you turn it on it will be hot by the time you put your pie in and the bottom of your pie will never be soggy even if you use glass or ceramic pie dishes.

I always do this, mainly in case of leakage from pies or quiches. It does help the pastry bake better in glass or ceramic pie dishes.

Don't forget mixed frozen veges and onion. (runs from the lynch mob) LMAO.

Save a soggy bottom sprinkle some grated cheese. (Thanks Alison )
