Bacon and Egg Pie New Zealand-Style
When seasoning, keep in mind that bacon is already salty.
You may use a frozen puff pastry rather than making the short crust pastry.
You can make the pastry dough in a food processor: Place the flour, salt, butter, and lard into the processor and mix until crumbly. Add the water and egg yolk and process in short bursts until the mixture comes out together. Turn dough onto a floured surface and roll out.
Use any mixture of cooked vegetables you have on hand such as potatoes, sweet potatoes, yams, or diced pumpkin.
