I've dropped in to say hi and leave you with this delicious Bacon and Egg Pie recipe. If you hadn't read my announcement from last week you will know why I have been a little lax in posting anything here for the past three months. I thought things were improving over the past two weeks but the weekend just gone left me feeling drained and unwell again. It was a reach for the crackers and lemonade and to turn my nose up at anything else kind of deal. I did manage to make a curry over the weekend which was a feat in itself at the moment and surprised myself with a few mouthfuls.
Since I knew what to expect with the onlslaught of morning sickness leading up to this pregnancy. I managed to indulge my husband and I in some tasty meals before the morning sickness hit and I was left retching while making dinner. You know all the fun stuff. I think I managed to get in a lasagna, curry, a roast lamb and this bacon and egg pie before I started feeling the squirmish nausea that comes just as you try to prepare dinner. This pie recipe has been sitting in the draft folder of my blog for the last three months waiting for me to surface from the world of nausea and tell you about it.
This pie is the best of a bacon and egg breasfast with wrapped in a delicous crust. I wanted to make the crust a little bit healthier so I opted to use a mix of spelt and wholemeal flour. I got all fancy with the top and created a lattice effect but if you are like me most of the time and running on empty by dinner time just make a normal pie crust top or none at all which is also fine too. I just like the egg yolks peeking out through the lattice. This pie makes a great midweek meal but what I found too was that I enjoyed it the next day for lunch and maybe even breakfast one morning. I would totally make it again for a brunch as it makes a pretty decent sized pie which would easily feed eight or so people. I served this for dinner with my green bean and zucchini salad that I had leftover from the previous night. Easy peasy.
If my memory serves me right (which at the moment may not always be true and correct due to baby brain) I think J.D loved this. He's a pastry fiend like his mum and I think he picked it all off his piece of pie before digging into the filling. I find it interesting to see the traits this little guy is showing from each of us. He is favouring my personality more than hubby's and I cringe sometimes at his attitude and behaviour and think "this is what my mum had to put up with from me!" Eeek. I am getting my own back now - SORRY MUM!. I am already dreading the teenage years and he's not even two.
