A Rare Miracle Weeknight Treasure! – Potato & Bacon Egg Pie

Potato & Bacon Egg Pie

Easy weeknight meals are always something I’m on the lookout for.

This potato & bacon egg pie is one I’ve been using on the weeknight meal rotations for a few years now and I’ve been meaning to share it with you all for ages. It comes from my very special friend Jennifer, she first made it for me as a lunch dish during one of our catch-ups in the lead up to when I was just about ready to give birth to Miss Alani.

I can remember being big and fat in Jennifer’s  kitchen while I watched her effortlessly whip up this little treasure before my eyes, all while, she too was a little less pregnant than me and we had 3 other little munchkins running around us. My point is, it’s not complicated, it’s easy, you can bake it in advance, it looks great and tastes deeeeelicious!

The biggest tick coming from me is that it’s a dish I can make and all 5 family members will eat it!!! A rare miracle to say the least!

For the record 4 of us are happy to eat the pie with side salad but one family member just has it alone (bet you can’t you guess who that would be?), I figure it has enough goodness in it to be a meal for her!

Another weeknight treasure which involves a little more time in the kitchen is this ‘Oven Baked Risotto with Chicken and Chorizo’ or if you’re looking for something you can walk away from try this ‘Slow Cooked Creamy Thai Chicken Curry’.

    Sorry This receipe sounds good but it was bland in taste. Family of four tried a small amount each. It was then
    Thrown out. A waste of ingredients

      Oh that’s no good Judy. So sorry it didn’t deliver satisfaction to your family, it’s had great feedback until now, some extra bacon or maybe some chorizo and cheese would get those tastebuds smiling.
