Homemade Veggies and Bacon Pie

If there is one thing I’ve always loved about cooking, it’s that recipes can get changed following what you have in your kitchen, what you like to eat etc.

The other thing I like about daily cooking, is that you don’t have a to cook like a chef to prepare a good meal. I would never pretend I cook like a chef, too much for me honestly. This what my next recipe is about.

But before giving you the recipe, let me tell you its story.

A few years ago now, my mom was away for a few days and I was left at home with brother and father, mainly as the cooker. I then realized what a struggle it could be every day for my mom to find what to cook for the next meal, she had to do what she had in the pantry and to make sure it wouldn’t get too much repetitive. I’ve never been a chef and at that time I didn’t cook as much as I do now. So, no place for fancy and complicated meals. Still I had to find something. After searching into our fridge I ended up with two (already made) pastries, some bacon and a bag of frozen veggies. This how I served this day a veggies pie to my brother and father. And guess what, they loved it! It was definitively a winner.

So I kept this recipe and arranged it along the years and it’s still one of my favourites.

Today I want to give you the whole homemade version, from homemade pastries to homemade veggies.

You’ll need for the pastries:

-250g of flour

-125g of butter

-1 egg

Mix these ingredients together until you get a ball that you’ll leave in the fridge while you prepare the stuffing.

You’ll need for the stuffing:

-Some pumpkin

-Some zucchini

-Some bacon

-Some heavy cream

-Some herbs, spices etc

Something I like about this recipe is that there is no right or wrong quantities, it all depends on your preferences.

Cook the veggies with the bacon and spices. When it’s cooked add the cream to the mixture. Keep it aside.

Now it’s time to assemble the pie.

Take the pastrie and warm it up in your hands. Divide it into two parts. Roll each one and place one in your tin. Pour your cooked mixture and place the second round of pastrie on top. Arrange it nicely (or not, if you like the messy look) and using a knife do some holes, to let the pie breath while baking.

Make it in the oven at 180°C until the top gets gold-brown. If you use a multifunctional cooker, use the cake program and leave it for 1 hour and a half.

Voila!

Enjoy !

I hope you like this recipe. Thank you once again for passing by and reading my blog.

I’ll talk to you soon in a next post.

Until then, take care of yourself ❤
