Vegan Egg, Sausage, and Bacon Pie
Written by McDonald, T. | Date 25th of September 2023
This is one of those recipes I used to make with my Nan as a boy. It was always a favourite of mine and would only be made on special occasions. This pie has a great combination of flavours without missing out on the oily textures associated with this classic 70s pie.
- I used crackD egg alternative for the egg substitute.
- I used this isn't bacon lardons.
- I used naked taste vegan sausages.
- I used ready rolled short crust pastry for the store.
- I found using a baking dish with a removable bottom helped a lot.
- If the pastry domes when you blind bake it, prod it with a folk.
Makes a pie with dimensions of
Time, about 30 to 35 minutes.
- Egg replacement x 150 g
- Vegan bacon lardons x 100 g
- Vegan sausages x 2
- Red onion, finely chopped x 1/4
- Salt x pinch
- Vegan cheese, grated x 30 g
- Short crust pastry x 200 g.
- Shallow baking dish with 21 cm in diameter.
- Frying pan
- Preheat the oven to 180 C.
- Grease the baking tin.
- Line the baking tin with the pastry and cut off any unneeded pastry.
- Blind bake the pastry for about 10 minutes on the lower middle shelf.
- While the pastry base is in the oven, lightly fry the sausage in a little olive oil. Once it starts to brown, remove and cut it up into thick slices and put back in the frying pan.
- Lightly fry the bacon lardons and chopped onion with the sliced sausage.
- When ready, remove the pastry base from the oven and allow to cool just a little.
- Add the sausage, bacon lardons and onion. Spread around as evenly as possible.
- Pour the egg replacement over the sausage, bacon, and onion.
- Add the vegan cheese alternative evenly to the top of the pie and place back in the oven for about 12 - 15 minutes.
- Remove from the oven when ready and allow to cool a little for about 1 minute will do. You might find that the middle of the pie lifts with the heat and that is why it is a good idea to let it cool a bit first.

I was so surprised at how good this pie was. It was every bit as good as the pies i used to make with my Nan as a boy. The egg replacement worked brilliantly as did the cheese alternative, which melted as expected.
