Bacon and egg pie

February 1, 2011 at 8:55 am (recipes) (, , )

This is a yummy take on the usual bacon and egg pie. It doesn’t use any pastry, the only ingredients being egg, bacon, cream, parmesan cheese and pepper. They are really easy to make and take about 20-30 minutes to cook (depending on how many eggs you use in each).

I cooked these for dinner the other night and served it with a garden salad with my pesto balsamic dressing (recipe to come!).

I didn’t have any pie tins or ramekins so I just used a stainless steel bowl (the bowl was quite big so I made one with two eggs instead of two separate ones).

Want to know how to make your very own gluten free bacon and egg pie?


  • Bacon
  • Egg(s) (depending on the size of your ramekin you can use one or two eggs)
  • Dollop of cream
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Pepper to season


1. Place the bacon around the edge of the ramekin (you don’t need to put any on the base)

2. Crack in the egg(s)

3. Pour in a small amount of cream

4. Sprinkle on some grated parmesan cheese and season with pepper (you don’t need salt because of the bacon)

Ready for the oven

5. Bake in the oven for 20-30 minutes

Ready to eat!

Serve and enjoy!
