A meat pie a month in 2011

Last November, my 8 year old daughter and I got to spend almost three weeks in New Zealand. In that time, I fell in love with meat pies. I’m not sure why, but the idea of having a pie for a meal, rather than just a dessert, captured my imagination!

So this month I’m starting a commitment to making a meat pie a month this year.

My daughter loved the bacon and egg pie we had in New Zealand, so that’s where I began.

My recipe came from my friend Kerri Tilby, our host in New Zealand. When I asked her for a recipe, this was her reply:

Bacon and Egg Pie is easy-peasy. Flaky puff pastry on bottom, break open half a dozen eggs, as many rashers of bacon as you like, chop up an onion, couple tablespoons of tomato sauce (ketchup), pastry on top and cook. I’ll find a proper recipe, but I’ve never used one! In NZ it’s one of those things you just watch your Mum make and then copy with your own children.

I found out that a “rasher” was “piece” of bacon. 🙂

Delicious and easy. This is going to be a fun experiment this year!
