Faux Jesters

Just the other day I willingly paid precisely $11.70 for a pie. Why? Because I felt like I needed to contribute to the economy and encourage foreign goods being imported to this tiny place. Yes, I was doing something major- well, that and the fact that I succumbed to the temptation of Australian pies. Don't ask.

But yesterday I didn't feel that I needed to support that import industry anymore. I also felt like I was ripped off (about time) and so I decided to make my own. 

Here's my equation:

-About a year ago my sister bought me a pie maker. Kinda like this one, but housing two pies at once rather than four. Obviously it never got out of the box, was stored in my pantry and only made its debut yesterday.

-A few months ago I bought puff pastry and it's been in my freezer ever since.

-I had middle bacon. Also in the fridge for a substantial amount of time.

-I had eggs..well, I always have eggs. I mean chicken eggs.

-I was reminiscing Jesters Pies.

So, I put everything together and tadaa!!... my version of Jester's Morning Glory. Mind you, it tasted exactly like it..just that I omitted the cheese. 

If you want a fast and easy faux Jesters Pie, all you need is (to make 2 pies):

Ready made puff pastry (I used Pampas), cut into 2x large, 2x small circle pie templates.
2 pieces of middle bacon, fried and cut into small pieces.
2 eggs

1. Heat up the pie maker as per instructions.
2. Place large circle puff pastry into the bottom mould.
3. Place bacon in each pie dish.
4. Pour one egg over each pie.
5. Place small circle puff pastry over the top.
6. Cook for 8-10 minutes or until pastry is cooked.

Voila. I felt like a genius.
