Crustless Egg and Bacon Pie
This is such an easy recipe. Just turn the oven on and by the time it is up to temperature, you will have all the ingredients together thrown together. This recipe is also a fabulous opportunity to add extra greens such as spinach, zucchini, asparagus, or any leftover vegetables.
You can even add your favourite herbs such as basil, chilli, rosemary or maybe a pinch of curry powder. The fun part of this dish is that eggs and bacon go so well with a large variety of flavours.
You can truly change the entire compensation and taste of this dish just by swapping out the seasoning and veg!
I like to enjoy this one warm out of the oven for a weekend brunch. I typically pair it with a side salad that is tossed in a nice vinaigrette. The flavours play very well together with the creamy eggs.
I also have eaten this crustless egg and bacon pie cold at work or sent it with my kids as a healthy packed school lunch. I have even taken this dish with me on a picnic—it's quite lovely.
I love making crustless pies (or some may say, quiche or frittata) because you can simply throw anything in from your vegetable drawer, or leftover cooked meat and voila.
How long can will bacon and egg pie last in the fridge?
If you keep it well covered, your pie should last about 2-3 days just fine. Since this is a crustless recipe, you don't have to worry about soggy bases.
Can I prep a pie and then bake the next day?
Honestly, this recipe is so simple that it takes only 5 minutes to prep. So really it's not worth prepping ahead of time.

Yes. Either as a whole or as individual slices with baking parchment in between. Always store in an airtight container to avoid “freezer burn” and to prevent it from absorbing other food odours.
