Pork and Egg Pie
Pies and Pastries

Double-crust hot water pie filled with chopped cured pork and a whole hard-boiled egg in the centre.

Pork and Egg Pie

When made not as an individual pie, but as a large loaf-type pie to be sold in portions by the grocer, honest-dealing demands that every single slice have a circle of both egg yolk and egg white in its centre - which has led to the ingeniously odd practice of manufacturing a long tubular form of boiled egg specifically for putting into pies

This pie type has been with us for a long time:

Original Receipt from The Forme of Cury by the Chief Master-Cook of King Richard II, c1390 (Cury 1390)

Hewe Pork al to pecys and medle it with ayrenn & chese igrated. do þerto powdour fort safroun & pyneres with salt, make a crust in a trape, bake it wel þerinne, and serue it forth.
