Bacon Pie



  1. Blend flour and butter together, add water, and make a firm dough. Do not knead.
  2. Shape the dough into a fat sausage, wrap in clingfilm and refrigerate for at least an hour.
  3. Slice the dough and put the slices in a pie pan, overlapping slightly. Push together to get an even thickness.
  4. Bake the crust at 180 degrees C for 8-10 minutes, just enough to cook it through without coloring it.
  5. Beat an egg, and brush the cooked pie crust. Cook the crust for another 3 minutes.
  6. Cut the tomatoes into quarters, and finely slice the spring onions and garlic.
  7. Cut the bacon into small bits and cook in a frying pan.
  8. When the bacon is almost done, add the tomatoes, spring onions and garlic, cook until the tomatoes are soft.
  9. Mix together the remaining six eggs, cream, cream cheese, chives and most of the parmesan.
  10. Put bacon, tomatoes and spring onions into the pie crust, and pour over the filling. Sprinkle the rest of the parmesan over.
  11. Cook the pie at 180 degrees C for 25-30 minutes, until it is golden.
