Whether gourmet or grandma style (home cooked), this tasty and simple pie creation has been feeding hard-working Kiwis for decades. There are as many recipes as there are cooks for this versatile dish; you can add or omit ingredients as you wish and you won't go wrong. Only bacon and eggs are compulsory; among the optional additions are peas, potatoes, tomatoes, cheese, onions and herbs. The bacon and egg pie is perfect for picnics. And it seems that nostalgic cooking is still very popular: the bacon and egg pie was recently voted (by a newspaper's readers and a judging panel) New Zealand's national dish.
