- On a lightly floured surface, roll out one sheet of puff pastry to fit the quiche dish or pie plate.

    ....we usually make ham and egg pie, with the left over ham from Christmas for the kids as a snack or lunch the next day....and they love and devour them....you can even freeze them in a lid tight container and when you want them just put them on a baking tray and cook for 10-15mins is yummy!

    This variation on a bacon and egg pie, sounds like a good way to use up leftover Chrsitmas ham and a great dish for picnics. But, here I go yet again....

    Once more, a picture that doesn't depict the recipe. The ham looks more like chicken and the eggs have been made into custard rather than maintaining their separate whites and yolks as the recipe specifies. And where are the green oniions? Further the picture shows something made in a loaf tin, not a pie plate or quiche tin.

      ...hahaha have to agree thought similar things when I first saw the picture myself so I had copied the recipe over into my recipe app minus the picture....lol

      Merry Christmas Tudalum. I'm happy to see that I'm not the only one who notices these things. I have a ham in my fridge right now and am wondering what I'm going to do with it. I love having thick slices of ham fried in butter on Christmas morning but always poses a dilemma for me. Should I cut the breakfast slices off the leg before I bake it, or bake it now then cut slices off, disguising the fact when I serve it all decorated with its glaze and ruffle at Christmas dinner!

        Merry Christmas Wice and a Prosperous New Year to you.....definitely bake it then cut it off the bone...nice....we have heaps of left overs so will probably come up with various dishes for those....including ham...

        Baked Ham and Egg Pie,. yum, nice one. Real food at anytime, Xmas ham as to use it up is ideal.

        You could also make this in a rectangular dish forget about the pastry altogether. It will just set into a ham and egg slice.

        If you haven't got any pastry but still want a base, another option is to line your dish with buttered stale bread slices (minus crusts and butter on outside) and pour the filling over the top. Let it stand a bit before baking so the bread can absorb the egg mixture.

        A third option is to make use the same filling but to put it on a savoury crumb base (just like a cheesecake).

        All options work well but give you three quite different dishes visually.

        Guess who had fried ham and eggs for breakfast. Yum! Yum! I'm glad we only have this at Christmas though as it wouldn't b half the treat otherwise!
      • Mellow says
        I also had a treat of 'Ham and eggs', a nice way to start a hectic day......
      • Wice says
        Somehow, even though you end up eating much more ham than you would bacon, ham and eggs seems sort of healthier than bacon and eggs too.

        I suspect that there won't be any left over for a ham pie though would be great to make one to put in the freezer for a picnic later in summr. I've seen them in the shops but never bought them. Does anyone know if ham and egg pies freeze ok?
