Pork and Egg Pie

Pastries - Savoury Double Crust Pies

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:
