Ingredients

  • 1 savory (recipe
  • 350 grams pork loin (recipe, Keto Pie Crust)
  • 6 slices bacon (recipe, Keto Pie Crust)
  • 4 large eggs (recipe, Keto Pie Crust)
  • 1/2 cup cream cheese (recipe, Keto Pie Crust)
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese (recipe, Keto Pie Crust)
  • 1 red onion (recipe, Keto Pie Crust)
  • 2 cloves garlic (recipe, Keto Pie Crust)
  • 1/4 cup chives (recipe, Keto Pie Crust)
  • 2 tablespoons ghee (recipe, Keto Pie Crust)
  • ground black pepper (recipe, Keto Pie Crust)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (recipe, Keto Pie Crust)

Instructions

  • Make the pie crust following this recipe.
  • You can either make 8 mini pie crusts or one regular crust.
  • Make the dough and press into the pan (I used a pan with removable bottom).
  • Place baking paper on top and use ceramic baking beans to weight the dough down.
  • You will need them to prevent the dough from rising and creating air bubbles, especially if you are making a large pie.
  • Place in the oven and bake for 12-15 minutes.
  • Peel and finely chop the onion and garlic and place on a pan greased with ghee.
  • Cook for 5-7 minutes while stirring.
  • Then add sliced bacon and cook for further 5 minutes or until crispy.
  • Dice the pork loin and add to the pan with the bacon.
  • Cook over a medium heat until browned from all sides.
  • When done, take off the heat and set aside to cool down.
  • Preheat the oven to 200 °C/ 400 °F.
  • Mix the eggs with the cream cheese and season with salt and pepper.
  • Grate the cheddar cheese.
  • Add the grated cheddar cheese to the egg mixture and combine well.
  • Add finely chopped chives or spring onion and mix well.
  • Place the cooked pork into the pie crust (leave it in the tart pan) and spread evenly.
  • Pour in the egg mixture and mix gently using a wooden spoon.
  • Place the pie into the oven and cook for about 25 minutes.
  • Serve hot or cold.
  • Enjoy!
