Here we have a simple pie that is perfect for easter or midsummer buffet which can be served both hot and cold. When I was filming this recipe, I had some chicken filet at home so I served the pie hot and made it into a whole meal instead which also worked well. Had I done something different, I would have chosen to have a bit more cheese and maybe given it a few more minutes in the oven (both the pie crust and the pie).

If you want to simplify this recipe even more, you can of course buy ready-made pie dough, but this dough contains only 3 ingredients and can be quickly thrown together. Having a food processor also makes it easier.

The pie is quite mild in its taste so I usually use a well-aged cheddar or another flavorful cheese to give it a bit more character. You can also add a little cayenne pepper to the egg-mix.

To make this pie more luxurious, you can serve it with roe and creme fraiche (or sour cream). It stays in the fridge for a few days and can also be frozen.

Pie Crust
  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C.
  2. Cut the cold butter into smaller pieces.
  3. Mix briefly in a food processor.
  4. Add the cold water and mix until crumbly.
  5. Flatten the dough into a pie tin (the one I use is 24cm in diameter), use a fork to create small holes in the dough so it does not rise in the oven.
  6. Pre-bake the pie crust in an oven at 200°C, 10-15 minutes.
  1. Grate the cheese.
  2. Mix all ingredients except the cheese.
  3. Toss the grated cheese in the pre-baked pie crust, pour over the egg mixture.
  4. Bake the pie in the oven, 200°C for about 25-30 minutes.
  5. Serve at a buffet or as a main course with chicken and a little mixed salad.
