If you’re heading on a picnic this summer, why not swap your sandwiches for this tasty pie?! You can easily make it vegetarian by subbing the bacon for another of your favourite vegetables. Serves 6-8.

Ingredients:
2 x 375g packs puff pastry
1 bunch spring onions
8-10 rashers streaky bacon
3 red peppers
6 large eggs

Method:
1. Preheat the oven to 200°C (fan 180°C/gas mark 6).

2. Slice the peppers into strips, brush with a little oil and roast in the oven for about 15 minutes.

3. Trim then chop the spring onions and fry in a little butter until soft, set aside on a plate.

4. Fry the bacon until crisp then cut into small pieces.

5. Unroll one pack of puff pastry and use to line a greased fluted flan tin 18-
20cm/3-4 cm deep.

6. Scatter the red peppers, spring onion and bacon over the pastry then break the 6 eggs carefully on the top. Season with salt and pepper.

7. Use the other pack of puff pastry to make a lid, trim the edges then brush with a little milk.

8. Make two holes in the top then bake for around 45 minutes. Leave to cool then pop in the fridge.

9. Before you head off on your picnic, slice the pie into portions. If you’re enjoying this dish at home, serve with a light salad.
