Skiwi Bacon & Egg Pie

This is a recipe I came up with using Scotch pie cases from the DIY Scotch Pie Company for BBC Radio Scotland's The Kitchen Cafe.  
We took the classic Kiwi style bacon & egg pie, giving them a Scottish twist by baking them in DIY Scotch pie bases with the end product being a Skiwi (Scottish-Kiwi) bacon & egg pie!

Kj's Tips

  • These make an amazing addition to a picnic or packed lunch cold.  

  • The DIY company do veggie pie cases so if you want to go veggie hold off on the bacon & add some leek or sweet potato instead.  

  • STORAGE: These will keep for up to 4 days in the fridge once cold.
