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.

In addition to making scrumptious family-friendly dishes like this Thai Red Curry, Seafood Gumbo or Chocolate Panna Cotta Nicole is a neuroscientist specializing in molecular neuroscience.

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.

I was gravitating towards her cheesecake collection (OMG, you gotta check out the Toberone Cheesecake) until I saw that she also shares recipes that are popular in New Zealand.

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.New Zealand Bacon Egg Pie made in mini spring form pans for individual servings! #egg #breakfast #newzealand |

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!

Enjoy with this Strawberry Avocado Chicken Salad or a Fresh Fruit Salad.

    I LOVE Bacon and Egg Pies! It was our go to school lunch and now I’ve passed on the bug to my husband! ๐Ÿ˜€ Definitely a favorite in every Kiwi household! I love the open pie twist!

  17. July 24, 2017

    People always underestimate the use of eggs as a main dish. I know I don’t usually think of them as a meal unless they are with breakfast or as a deviled egg. I love the idea of this egg pie with a salad for lunch or dinner! And the smaller individual portions are genius!

  18. July 25, 2017

    Eggs are the kind of meal that does not have to be for breakfast. All day long, the perfect delicious and easy meal. Love this open pie and that long photo is so delicious! Nice to meet you Nicole!
