Set oven to 180°C. Heat the butter and sauté the onions until soft.

Add the bacon and cook through. Add the tomatoes and cook for a further 2 minutes. Set aside to cool slightly.

Roll out one third of the pastry thinly and line a greased pie dish.

Spoon in the bacon mixture.

Make 6 indentations in the bacon mixture and break an egg into each.

Sprinkle with salt, pepper, mustard powder and parsley.

Roll out the remaining pastry a little thicker. Sprinkle the grated cheese over the pastry and roll lightly into the pastry.

Cover the pie, seal edges then brush with egg.

Bake for 25 minutes or until pastry is golden.

Tip of the day

 
Smelly microwave?
Remove cooking smells from your microwave oven by simply slicing a cucumber, spreading it out on a plate and cooking it in the oven at 100% for five minutes.
