Well I had bacon, eggs, tomatoes, onions and pastry, so I thought why not make a pie. I recently found a clipping of this recipe I had cut out years ago (2003), so tonight I thought I'd make it.
It was delicious, my family loved it. It was very, very easy to make, and quite quick to throw together.
Now the dish required for this is a rectangular loose based flan tin. As I did not have one at home, I used the same sized rectangular slice tin and just lined it with baking paper. It worked just fine.
This can be eaten at anytime really, it would work for breakfast or for lunch, it would even be great to take on a picnic.
So if you are like me and you don't know what to cook, you need something fast and easy, and you have these ingredients in your refrigerator, give it a go, it really is good.
1 teaspoon olive oil
4 rashers bacon, finely chopped
1 medium brown onion, finely chopped
3 sheets puff pastry, thawed
3 roma (egg) tomatoes, thinly sliced
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 egg, extra, lightly beaten
1 tablespoon milk
Green Salad, to serve
Grease a 21cm x 28cm rectangular loose based flan tin (see notes above for alternate tin preparation).
Heat oil in a large frying pan, add bacon, cook stirring, for 2 minutes. Add onion, cook stirring, until onion is soft and bacon lightly browned. Cool.Preheat oven to 200C.
Join 1 1/2 sheets of the pastry together. Line the base and sides of your prepared tin with the pastry; trim edge. Place tin onto an oven tray.
Here is a diagram on how to lattice pastry. Just make yours in a rectangle shape.
Lightly beat together the extra egg and milk, brush the top of the lattice with the egg mixture. Pour any remaining egg mixture over the pie, it will seep into the gaps in the lattice.
Cut the warm pie into 6 squares and serve with a green salad.
