Breakfast Pie: An Easy Recipe

As its name suggests, breakfast pie is the perfect recipe for brunch. This savoury pie made with bacon, cheddar and eggs is also a tasty meal if accompanied by a green salad. We suggest you discover this easy and delicious recipe.


Here are the ingredients needed to make a breakfast pie for 3 people:

a roll of puff pastry
3 tablespoons of light heavy cream
150 g of smoked bacon or bacon
a handful of grated Gruyère cheese
a handful of grated cheddar cheese
3 organic eggs
2 tablespoons of chopped chives


The preparation of the breakfast pie is very simple.

1- Unroll the puff pastry in a pie dish, keeping the baking paper.

2- Roll up the edges of the pastry to form a small sausage. Prick the bottom of the pastry with a fork.

3- Fry the bacon strips for a few minutes.
Be careful: they should not be fried, but simply remain pink.
Drain them to remove the fat.
