Scale

Ingredients

  • 30 mL hot sauce (optional)
  • 9 eggs
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 500 grams Sausages
  • 1 tin of baked beans
  • 700 grams frozen pastry (shortcrust or puff)

Instructions

  1. Fry the onion in a little oil until cooked.
  2. Add the beans and hot sauce.
  3. Cook the mixture to reduce the liquid (about 10 minutes gentle frying), stirring frequently.
  4. This mixture will be at the base of the pie

Meanwhile

  1. A 20.5 x 20.5cm cake pan, or a round 23cm metal pie dish is ideal.
  2. Heat oven to 200°C. Use two thirds of the pastry to line a shallow greased 23cm pie tin (roll pastry out on a floured board if you’re using a block rather than sheets).
  3. Spread the bean mixture over the bottom of the pastry.
  4. Add a layer of sliced sausage.
  5. Crack eggs on top and season with salt and pepper.
  6. Use the remaining pastry to make a lid. Crimp the pastry edges together with your fingers and trim off any excess.
  7. Use the trimmings to decorate the pie if you wish (attach these with a dab of egg wash).
  8. Cut four small vents in the pastry lid with a sharp knife.
  9. Brush with beaten egg mix and bake 35 – 40 minutes until rich golden brown and crispy.
  10. Serve warm – or cold.
