“I found this recipe in a cookbook I bought at a garage sale. “Good Things in England” by Florence White was published in 1933. The recipes are from 1399 to 1932. Posted for the Zaar World Tour 2005. Time to make and serving amounts are estimated.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 sheets pie crusts
  • 1 cup grated cheese (I prefer cheddar.)
  • 12 large onion, minced
  • 12 cup bacon bits (or 4 slices cooked bacon, crumbled)
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1 egg, beaten


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. (Follow the directions for your pie crust.).

  3. Layer the ingredients in the pie crust in this order: cheese, onion, bacon, salt and pepper.
  4. Cover the pie with the 2nd pie crust. Trim and decorate as desired.
  5. Brush the top of the pie with the beaten egg.
