Breakfast gets rolled into a pie that's perfect for a picnic with this simple recipe!

Picnic season is almost on it's way out. It's such a shame because we love grabbing the picnic blanket and basic, a tube of bubbles and cold drinks and trotting off to one of Manchester's many parks to lay in the sun!

We're unconventional picnic-ers, ditching the foil-wrapped sandwiches and packets of crisps an opting for proper food: tubs of coleslaw and potato salad, cocktail wings and small hand pork pies or mini quiches, sausage rolls and of course, bakery fresh cherry tartlets. That's why this recipe is so exciting! It would be perfect made the day before, refrigerated, warmed and sliced to be enjoyed al fresco.

I really wanted to take this pie to a picnic and take photos of it there, with us ramming in mouthfuls of perfectly "boiled" egg and bacon in the sunshine, but it rained. So I whipped up some breakfast potatoes and we dined around the table. This pie recipe came from the July edition of Sainsbury's magazine and it calls for the addition of spring onion and roasted bell peppers that I omitted. The breakfast potatoes recipe is my attempt at recreating a childhood favorite. For me, the potatoes were the star of the show. I found the pie to be a little dry and far too salty (but that was the bacon). I'm not sure adding in the onions and peppers would exactly help with boosting the moisture, but if it might be worth a consideration.

Bacon & Egg Pie with Skillet Potatoes from www.anyonita-nibbles.comIngredients:

For the bacon and egg pie
2 packs of puff pastry
6 large eggs
12 rashers of bacon

For the potatoes
1 small onion, diced
2 or 3 large potatoes, diced
4 tbsp butter
paprika to taste
parsley to taste


Bacon & Egg Pie with Skillet Potatoes

For the pie:
1. Preheat your oven to 200C/400F.

2. Fry bacon in batches, meanwhile, line a pie dish with one of the packets of puff pastry.

3. Arrange 3/4 of the cooked bacon on top of the pastry-line dish.

4. Break the eggs over top of the bacon and place the remaining bacon over the eggs.

5. Top with the other packet of puff pastry to form a lid.

6. Brush the entire top of the pie with a bit of milk.

7. Score an X into the center of the pie and bake about 40 minutes or until golden. 

For the potatoes:

8. While the pie bakes, prepare the potatoes by peeling and dicing.

9. Boil the potatoes for about 4 minutes or long enough to soften but not too long that they begin to break down.

10. Drain well and toss with the diced onions.

11. Heat butter in a skillet and, once hot, add the potatoes and onions.

12. Arrange the potatoes and onions in a layer and fry until they begin to color.

13. Toss every so often until they are done, about 5 to 8 minutes.

Welcome to #GetHimFed with Jess from Hungry Harps and me! :)

We have all heard the saying, “The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.” It’s true – and any good woman knows it! Not only do men love to satisfy their hunger with something delightful on the palate, they are also in love with the fact that their meals are made, with love, by the women in their life. Sometimes they are even eager to please back after tasting a recipe that was whipped up for them – and those are the ones we are looking for at #GetHimFed!
