    2. Cover dish with the second sheet of pastry, pinch the edges firmly together, and trim away any excess. Prick the centre so that the steam can escape, and brush with egg wash.

    Real men eat bacon & egg pie Not keash?????. Your recipe is close enough for people that can not afford a kilo of bacon. I will give you 4 stars. All the other recipes are keash????? (if that is how it's spell it) The one thing you don't do is (because you are young - and I Use my great Gran's recipe,) You do NOT BREAK THE EGGS and stir them. You use the back of a dessert spoon to make hollows in the top of the minced bacon and break the whole eggs into the hollows. Then cover with pastry. You do not need to have pastry at the bottom of this pie. It sets fine. Just make sure you remove the rind but not the fat before mincing the bacon. This will set Remember REAL MEN EAT BACON & EGG PIE!!!!!! Sorry to sound a bit snappy but I have been making real B&E pie's for 60yrs.  -  13 Oct 2009
