These were easy to make. Doesn't have to have pesto. Great with hollandaise sauce.

Nice flavour with the pesto, takes them up a notch from everyday.

Tried this overnight and it was great. Quick and easy and the pesto dip turned it from basic bacon and egg pie to something a bit different. I believe the Basil Pesto Chunky Dip is gluten free too, so will use this for GF lunches for a friend

Fantastic pie recipe. I would recommend it.

Being asked to set up a fund-raiser morning tea with little notice, I decided to try this recipe.

What an easy, quick and tasty recipe this was, and went down so well - I was asked to repeat it!! It was so convenient too, and the plates cleared in no time!! ( I also used some of the other dips too.) I will be trying some of the other dips for the next meeting!

Thank you, Food in a Minute for the ideas!

Really delicious for breakfast, brunch or a quick meal. Couldn’t be easier & plenty of tasty variations if you change the cheese (feta, gruyere etc) or replace the bacon with ham, pastrami or prosciutto slices.
