Bacon, egg & tomato pie

Method

  • Preheat oven to 180°C fan forced (200°C normal).
  • Heat a little oil in a heavy-bottomed pan and gently sauté the onions and bacon until tender, stirring now and again.
  • Spread half of the onion mixture in the base of a gratin (or any oven) dish. Then make 4 wells and break in 4 eggs. Scatter the remaining onion mixture over the top, being careful not to break the eggs, and layer with the tomatoes.
  • Season well and break another 4 eggs on top. Place a pastry sheet over and crimp the edges.
  • Combine the remaining egg with the milk and generously brush the pastry with the egg wash.
  • Then cook the pie in the oven for about 30-40 mins. (Cover with foil if browning too much.)
  • Serve hot or cold with a simple salad on the side.
