You know the family recipes that you’ve been making for years but can’t really trace? This is one of those. Something my mothers has made for as long as I can remember, something I make all the time and something whose roots cannot be traced to anything except great foodie memories.

This is a recipe that often comes out on holiday road trips. Something my mother would bake of a morning before setting off, pack into tupperware to be enjoyed at a service station between home and 1000km away.

It doesn’t need sauce, can be eaten without such refineries as plates and cutlery and it’s simply a matter of dusting off the crumbs before jumping back into the car.

Ingredients

  • 4-5 rashers of bacon (you’ll need about 24 pieces of bacon all up)
  • 4 eggs medium boiled
  • 3 sheets of puff pastry
  • 1/2 red onion finely chopped
  • 1 egg to brush on top

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 220C/400F. Line a baking tray with paper
  2. Cut the bacon into 5 cm strips and set aside.
  3. Cut the egg into halves and then divide each half into 3. Doesn’t matter if the eggs break apart, just put them back together when assembling.
  4. Cut the pastry sheets in half and then each half into 4 so you have 8 rectangles.
  5. Grab a piece of pastry and place a strip of bacon in the middle and place a section of egg and a sprinkle of onion on top.
