I took a little help from the store and used store bought pastry and the rest of the filling came together in a few minutes, so this was a really quick and easy recipe to make and it turns out it is also really good! so thank you so much for introducing me to a pie from Kent and giving me a little taste of home thousands of miles away in another country!
Also, please excuse the pictures, my camera finally died and I am stuck using the iphone, here's hoping father christmas brings me a new camera this year!
2 sheets of pie crust
12 slices bacon, cooked and chopped
2 apples, peeled, cored and sliced
8 oz sharp cheddar cheese
3 tbsp heavy cream
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 egg yolk
Preheat oven to 350.
unroll the pastry sheet and place it in the bottom of a pie pan. Put some parchment paper over the crust and fill with dried beans, bake for 15 minutes and set aside.
In a large bowl beat the 8 eggs together and stir in the heavy cream and black pepper.
In the bottom of the pie shell place half the bacon, followed by half the cheese and half the apples, then repeat with the remaining ingredients. Pour the beaten eggs over the filling, top with the second sheet of pie crust and use a knife to remove any excess pastry, cut a few slits in the pastry then brush with the beaten egg yolk, bake for 50 minutes.
