How to Bake Egg and Bacon Puffpie

by Bill Wood

This is a quick and easy breakfast pie. My brother (Dave Wood) put out the same recipe but in tarts. I thought I would try it the original way.


  • 1 Pounds Bacon
  • 1 Cup Sour cream
  • ½ Cups Flour
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1 Tomato
  • 4 Ounces Mozzarella cheese
  • 1 Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
  • 1 Pinch Pepper (to taste)
  • 1 Tablespoon Hot sauce ( optional )
  • 9" pie plate
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    What you need!

    Step 2

    Cut bacon into 1 inch pieces. Cook bacon. Put on paper towel to drain fat and cool.

    Step 3

    Grate cheese. I like cheese so this is about 8-10 oz of cheese!

    Step 4

    Thinly slice tomato.

    Step 5

    Pre heat oven to 350* F.

    Step 6

    Line a pie plate with the Pillsbury Crescent Rolls. If you don't like these you can use a ready made pie crust.

    Step 7

    Just push it around all areas to make it even. I have a little lip above edge of pie plate to hold in the goodness!

    Step 8

    Separate the eggs. Put the whites aside for now.

    Step 9

    Add sour cream to the egg yolks.

    Step 10

    Mix well.

    Step 11

    This step is optional. I add some hot sauce. It's not in the original recipe, but thought it might be good! What kind of hot did I use, check next step.

    Step 12

    I used the cayenne pepper hot sauce. ( the red one)

    Step 13

    Mix in the flour.

    Step 14

    Mix well to get the lumps out. Add a pinch of pepper.

    Step 15

    With the egg whites. Beat them until fluffy.

    Step 16

    Pour whites into egg mixture.

    Step 17

    Fold in the whites carefully.

    Step 18

    Fold until well mixed.

    Step 19

    Now to put the pie together. Start with the crust.

    Step 20

    Add the bacon.

    Step 21

    Place the tomato slices on top of the bacon.

    Step 22

    Add the cheese next.

    Step 23

    Pour the egg mixture on top of cheese.

    Step 24

    Place in oven.

    Step 25

    It's ready after 30-35 minutes.

    Step 26

    Cut into pieces and serve. Sorry for the paper plate, I don't feel like cleaning more plates!
