Step 1Make 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.

Step 2Place 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.

Step 3Peel 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.

Step 4Dice 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.

Step 5Preheat the oven to 200 °C/ 400 °F (fan assisted), or 220 °C/ 425 °F (conventional). Mix the eggs with the cream cheese and season with salt and pepper. Grate the cheddar cheese.

Step 6Add the grated cheddar cheese to the egg mixture and combine well. Add finely chopped chives or spring onion and mix well.

Step 7Place the cooked pork into the pie crust (leave it in the tart pan) and spread evenly.

Step 8Pour in the egg mixture and mix gently using a wooden spoon. Place the pie into the oven and cook for about 25 minutes.

Step 9When done, remove from the oven and let it rest for 5 minutes before serving. Serve hot or cold.

Step 10To store, refrigerate for up to 4 days.
