Take your classic Bacon and Egg Pie to the next level with the addition of sautéed red onions and tomato relish. A nostalgic recipe for those of us who have fond memories of of eating this in childhood.
When I was a girl, it wasn't a real picnic, long car journey or shared morning tea if someone hadn't brought along Bacon and Egg Pie to share. The ultimate hot or cold snack full of protein and flavour.
I've jazzed this version up a little with the addition of sautéed red onions. This adds a lovely flavour and I highly recommend you try it! Also, if you love the combination of flavours in this recipe you will love my Bacon and Egg Pizza Slab.
- Red onion: I love the flavour and colour that red onion offers to this pie. You could substitute them for brown onions or leave them out all together if you prefer.
- Bacon: I generally buy streaky bacon. But any type would work well including middle bacon.
- Relish: Any type of relish would work in this recipe. You could also leave it out of the pie and serve it on the side when cooked.

Step by step instructions:
Preheat oven to 180°C fan bake. Add the olive oil to a frying pan. On a medium heat, sauté the red onion for 5 to 10 minutes until soft.
In a large bowl whisk together 6 of the eggs with the parsley and season well with salt and pepper.
Line the base and sides of a large baking dish with the puff pastry sheets. Pour in the egg mixture. Scatter in the chopped bacon and cooked red onion.
Crack the leftover 6 eggs directly on top, use a fork to break the yolks if desired. Add dollops of chutney and season again.
Place the leftover pastry sheets on top of the pie and seal the sides. Brush any extra egg from the bowl over the top of the pastry.
Bake for 50 minutes until golden and cooked through.
Leave to sit for 10 minutes before serving.
The eggs can be polarising! Some people insist on keeping them all whole, some whisk them all. I like a mixture of both. Do whatever you prefer.
Either works! My childhood memories are mostly of cold bacon and egg pie, eaten at a family picnic or a shared morning tea. But it tastes equally delicious fresh out of the oven with a side salad.
Store any leftover bacon and egg pie in an airtight container in the fridge for up to three days. Either eat cold or reheat in the oven or microwave until piping hot.
Bacon and Egg Pie can also be frozen. Store in an airtight container or cling film in the freezer for up three months. Defrost completely before reheating in the oven until warmed all the way through.

Delicious! I caramelised the onions with brown sugar & balsamic vinegar too. Pie was a huge hit. Thank you so much
Yum, that sounds delicious!
