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.
