Intro: Breakfast Pie
My son in law has to be at work at 5 am and normally packs a breakfast and a lunch because he does not eat breakfast before he goes to work. When I visit them I pack his breakfast and lunch, it is my way of letting him know how much I appreciate him. This recipe is a good recipe to make for a single serving pie. It is a way to use up small portions of left over vegetables. I always make extra servings when I cook, so I can make one or two servings into a different meal for the following day. Follow through and I will show you how to make a very good breakfast pie.
Step 1: Ingredients
One of the small cardboard pie containers will hold 1 level cup of vegetables. I combine what vegetables I have on hand to make about 1 1/4 cups of filling, (vegetables, cheese, scrambled egg, bacon, gravy).
1 - 2 Baking potato's
Mushrooms ( Saute')
Step 2: Prepare Ingredients
Put 2 Tablespoons of flour in a jar and season to taste and shake well. Allow broth or milk to set out a while to warm up and then add 1 cup to the flour mixture and shake until no lumps are showing.
I normally use canned milk for gravy because we don't use enough milk to buy fresh.
Step 3: Lightly Saute' Onions Mushrooms and Peppers
I don't cook the tomatoes because they taste better fresh in this pie.
Step 4: Cook Hashbrowns
Cook the hash-brown mixture until the potatoes are slightly brown and then remove from the heat.
Step 5: Sauce
Step 6: Pie Dough
Poke a few steam holes.
Bake at 350 Degrees F for 10 minutes.
Sorry I did not get a picture of the cooked pie shell.
Step 7: Fill Pie Shell
Pour gravy over the potatoes
Add scrambled egg
Cover the top with the 2nd layer of pie dough and trim off excess.
Poke steam holes.
Bake 350 Degrees F for about 35 minutes or until the crust is brown.
