New Zealand Bacon Egg Pie made with flakey pastry sheets, bacon and whole eggs that cook hard! This savory meal is a perfect picnic meal!
Welcome to the latest round of Freaky Friday summer blog hop! If this event is new to you, you are in for a treat! The Freaky Friday event consists of a group of talented bloggers that are secretly assigned to another participant’s site to make a recipe that caught their eye.
I was assigned to the very talented Nicole from PicNic!
As you might guess, Nicole is a New Zealander who created this traditional New Zealand Bacon and Egg Pie.
A lot of hard work went into earning a PhD, but lately she has turned her attention to another rewarding role…Nicole is a new MOMMY!
I’m sure you can imagine how busy life is right now, which made me think of all the busy families that look for simple and nutritious meals.
What a great way to dive into a new culture! I adapted Nicole’s Bacon and Egg Pie only in presentation. All the ingredients are the same except that Nicole adds another layer of Puff pastry to her pie. I wasn’t confident in my ability to layer and crimp the dough on top, so I left it open.
With the remaining sheet of pastry I made another batch of the egg mixture, placed the crust in mini springform pans, and made individual size servings!
This recipe is perfect to share with guests and easy to make in advance, so if you have a summer picnic planned, then this is the recipe for you!
