Like all good pies it uses shortcrust pastry for that crumbly, buttery crust, and is filled with the most delicious egg, bacon and parsley mixture – just like mum used to make!

Tony recommends serving with tomato sauce, salad and homemade chips. This recipe will keep, covered in the fridge, for five days.
