This recipe was given to me this past Easter by a wonderful lady. We don't wait until Easter to make and eat it! One egg usually will do, but 2 may be necessary.

Ingredients

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Roll out pastry to fit a 9 inch pie plate. Place bottom crusts in 2 pie plates. Roll out top crusts and set aside.

  • Cut sausage into 1 inch pieces. Heat a skillet over medium heat and cook sausage until brown. Place sausage in a large bowl, and add hard cooked eggs, Cheddar cheese, Provolone cheese, Ricotta cheese, and parsley. Mix together and season to taste with salt and pepper.

  • Add one raw egg to mixture. Mix well and check consistency - it should not be loose or runny, but should hold together well. Add one more raw egg if necessary.

  • Spoon filling into 2 pastry-lined pie pans, and cover with other 2 pastry shells. Seal edges and cut steam vents in top. Brush top pastry with melted butter or margarine.

  • Bake in preheated oven for 35 minutes, until golden brown.

I was so excited to try this recipe but dissappointed when I tasted it. I will say that unlike others I did not find this difficult or time consuming at all--I thought it was super easy with two little ones underfoot no less! However I thought it was bland and needed to be perked up. My other comment is that the recipe says it makes two pies. I followed the recipe exactly and there did not seem to be enough filling for two; we ended up with two flat pies.

This dish is really something. You will crave it. Even months after you eat it. I made it for Christmas morning breakfast and everyone was oohing and ahhing. Definatly a breakfast dish. Prep the fist part the night before then put it in the pastry in the morning and bake. Not too much prep time if you cook well and are organized. I don't know what kids would think of it but I gave it a 5 in that catagory too.

This is a great recipe that I have been looking for for over 30 years. My mother-in-law always made it at Easter and I misplaced my recipe about three years after her death and have not been able to find a copy of it since.

Ever since we were newlyweds my husband insists on having this pie for EVERY holiday. You should see his eyes light up when he discovers me preparing it - and he is a very finicky weight concious person! It is time consuming so I divide the tasks up. 2 days before I cut up the cheeses and cook the sausage (I also use a combination of hot and sweet) and the eggs. The night before I mix all the ingredients together. Then I just have to pour it into the pie shell and bake it for brunch! I also leave off the top crust. It simply isn't necessary and a look at the mixed ingredients peaks my guests' interest. Smells so good!

This was okay. I would make it again but with these changes: leave out the parsley and eggs add garlic and parmesan cheese and mushrooms.

This pie was delicious! I couldn't believe how quickly it was devoured! I used a combination of hot and sweet sausage and also added some swiss cheese.

The Pie was OK. I knew I'd be the only one in my house to eat it before I made it because I am the only one that likes dinner pies. I think the pie needed a little zip. Maybe some worsteshire or some tomato something to add a small amount of tang.
