Sausage and Egg Pie

Something to make on a very lazy day - requires minimum effort and tastes good too! 

For the pastry 

I needed an easy recipe for making the pastry for the pie. Not a big fan of playing around with butter. Searched online and found this really simple way to make butter-less pastry


  • 225g flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • pinch salt
  • 4 tbsp mild salad oil
  • 1/2 beaten egg
  • 3 tbsp hot water
  • If you're making something sweet, add a tablespoon of caster sugar
  • Put all the ingredients into a lidded plastic box and shake it for at least a minute. When you take off the lid, you will find a lumpy mixture; form it into a ball with your hands, and roll it out on a floured surface.
  • Place the rolled out pastry onto a pie dish. I didn't have one and used a loaf tin instead.
For the filling

  • Onion - 1 sliced
  • Green Pepper(Capsicum) - 1 sliced
  • Chicken Sausages sliced- 2 cups 
  • Eggs - 4
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Oil - 2 tbsp
  • Preheat oven to 180°C.
  • Heat oil and saute the onions, green pepper and sausages till cooked. Season with salt and pepper. Add chilli powder if you want extra heat. 
  • Once done, remove from flame and cool.
  • Beat the eggs, add salt and pepper and mix with the sausages.
  • Pour this into the pie dish lined with pastry.
  • Bake for 30 minutes.
  • Slice and serve!
