Simple Bacon Pie Recipe with Feta & Spring Onions
Easy recipe for a delicious dinner pie with bacon and spring onions. An easy bacon pie enjoyed by kids and adults alike, and it’s great for lunch as well as dinner.
3.88 oz (110 g) butter
3.53 oz (100 g) flour
2.82 oz (80 g) graham flour
5.29 oz (150 g) bacon dice
1 bundle spring onions
3.53 oz (100) feta cheese
0.42 oz (1 dl) creme fraiche
- We start by making the pie dough. Cut butter into small cubes with your KUMA kitchen knife.
- Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Start combining the dough using your hands.
- Keep kneading the ingredients and working the dough until it’s fully combined.
- If it’s too tough combining it, you can add a little bit of water to help.
- When you have a good pie dough form it into a ball and wrap it in plastic saran.
- Place it in the fridge for 30 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 350 F (175 C).
- Add some flour on your table and roll out the pie dough until it gets a shape that’ll fit in your pie pan. Gently poke holes in the dough with a fork.
- Bake the pie crust in the preheated oven for 10 minutes. While it bakes, let’s make the filling
- Heat up a pan with no grease and add bacon dice to sauté until golden and crispy. Then remove them from the pan and onto a plate with some paper towels.
- Clean spring onions and slice them into roughly 1.5 inch pieces (cut them shorter if your spring onion is very thick as we don’t want too large pieces due to the cooking time in the oven)
- Crumble feta in a bowl.
- Beat eggs with creme fraiche, salt, and pepper.
- Remove pie crust from oven after 10 minutes and add half of your spring onions, bacon, and crumbled feta evenly on the bottom.
- Add egg mixture evenly on top of everything you just added. Then top the egg mixture with your remaining filling.
- Bake the pie in the oven for 25-30 minutes or until the egg mass is firm and slightly golden.
- Remove pie from oven and let it rest for 5-10 minutes before serving.
Easy dinner recipe for pie with bacon, feta, and spring onions
The most lovely pie with bacon, spring onions, and feta cheese. It tastes like autumn but to be honest this bad boy is perfect all year around! The whole grain pie crust is made with graham flour and regular wheat flour, giving it an amazing taste and texture.
Best pie toppings
We make our pie fillings / toppings with a wonderful egg mixture made of eggs beaten in creme fraiche, and then we add crumbled feta cheese, crispy bacon dice, and spring onions. This is such a perfect flavor combination that everyone you serve it for will love!
We often use spring onions when we cook. We like using it as a topping or garnish, in wok recipes, in salads, etc., but it also tastes amazing when added in a warm pie like this one. Spring onions are an underrated vegetable in our opinion! It has this mild yet fresh flavor to it, and it just fits perfectly with the salty, savory bacon and the creamy feta cheese.

You can serve this amazing pie for lunch or for dinner, and it’s perfect for children and adults alike, making it a truly family friendly meal.

You can actually prepare the pie dough in good time and even roll it out in the pie pan before putting it back in the fridge - then you just need to bake it and add your filling when time comes.
Can I serve a salad on the side with my pie?
A like like this is a meal in itself but a nice salad on the side never hurts. You could try a nice tomato salad with burrata, a fresh and healthy melon salad, or perhaps our sweet potato salad.
Easy meal prep ideas for lunch and dinner
Pies like this one are perfect for meal plans and meal prepping. Simply scale up all the ingredients to make the number of pies you wish. Once cooked you can leave your pies in the fridge for about half a week or keep them in the freezer for much longer. They are totally fine to reheat in the oven and taste just as good as the first time.
What’s the difference between a pie and tart?
In general, the main difference between a pie and a tart is the type of pastry used and the depth of the dish.
Pies usually have a thicker pastry crust and a deeper dish. They can have a top and bottom crust or just a top crust. Pies are typically filled with a mixture of savory ingredients that are baked together until the crust is golden brown and the filling is hot and bubbly. Pies are often cut into wedges and served as a main dish or a hearty snack.
Tarts, on the other hand, are made with a thinner pastry crust and have a shallower dish. They are often made with a single crust and are filled with a mixture of savory or sweet ingredients. Tarts are usually served as an appetizer, side dish, or dessert.
In short, a pie usually has a deeper dish and a thicker pastry crust, while a tart will have a shallower dish and a thinner pastry crust.
