Original Receipt in 'The Experienced English Housekeeper' by Elizabeth Raffald (Raffald 1769)

Egg and Bacon Pie to eat cold:
Steep a few thin slices of bacon all night in water, to take out the salt, lay your bacon in the dish, beat eight eggs with a pint of thick cream, put in a little pepper and salt, and pour it on the bacon, lay over it a good cold paste, bake it a day before you want it in a moderate oven.
