Indianised Bacon And Egg Pie

Low Calorie Bacon And Egg Pie

Reading Enid Blyton story books as children introduced us to a world of fascinating food- sausage rolls; gooey macaroons fresh from the oven, pies, tarts and a host of other goodies.  I have always wanted to bake a Bacon And Egg Pie and cam across many while googleing for recipes.  After numerous tries and feedback I came up with this version which is low calorie, quick to assemble and tastes heavenly hot or cold.

The Recipe:

200 gms bacon, washed and diced; 7 medium eggs; 250 gms low fat cream cheese (instead of the usual cheese);  250 gms curds (instead of heavy cream); 3 green chillies, minced (my addition); 1 large onion, minced; 1 spring onion, chopped; 2 tbsp chopped coriander leaves (my addition);  1 tbsp garlic, fried golden brown;  2 tbsp onions, fried caramel brown; salt to taste.

Topping:  2 tbsp mozzarella cheese,grated
Preheat oven to 350°F.  Oil pyrex dish.  Beat the eggs with the cream cheese and curds.
Add salt to taste.  Add the rest of the ingredients and  mix well. Pour into the pyrex
dish.  Bake for 40 minutes or until golden brown.
Take out from oven and sprinkle the mozzarella cheese on top.   It will melt in minutes.
Let stand for 20 minutes and serve with a green salad and crusty bread.
