    This sounds – and looks – so delicious, can’t wait to give it a go. Love your suggestion of having it with chutney or a pickle.

  2. Caroline says:

    It’s a fairly protein-heavy pie so it’s a good idea to have something to cut that richness. Not tomato sauce, though!

  3. Clare says:

    It looks hearty and so yummy! I had a couple of great hand-held pies in NZ the times I was there. Good after some hard labour!

  4. Caroline says:

    You’re right, Clare – there’s normally a whole meal packed into a New Zealand pie! No extras necessary.

  5. Bacon and Egg pie recipes are absolutely the tastiest & easiest methods. And this recipe made it more BEAUTIFUL!
