A Lazy Saturday Breakfast

As the sun comes up on a calm Saturday morning, and as the end of a frantic week is gratefully waved goodbye, I have but one thought in my head:

Bacon and Egg Pie.

And not only is it as easy as falling off a log, it tastes seriously good. This recipe makes 4 individuals:

3 rashers of bacon
4 eggs
1/2 a large onion, chopped
1 Tomato
6 sheets filo pastry
Butter, melted
70g tin of sweetcorn
4 tablespoons grated tasty cheese
Dash of milk

Chop the bacon roughly and fry in a pan until crispy. Place in a small mixing bowl. Fry the onions in the same pan, and add to bowl with corn. Brush each pastry sheet with butter, and cut into 3 pieces. Layer 4 pieces of pastry into each individual pie dish, arranging the edges roughly. Break the eggs into the bowl with bacon, onion and corn. Add a good shake of nutmeg, salt and pepper, a dash of milk, and most of the cheese. Stir well and divide into the 4 pie dishes (it should only be about half full - the egg will rise as it cooks). Top with thin slices of tomato, and sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake in a 200 degree oven for 15-20 minutes, or until egg is cooked and pastry is browned.
