Do you have those old clippings of recipes you thought you’re gonna try someday but turned out never? Sounds familiar, huh?
I have this recipe for so long! I thought it must be a very delish pie ‘coz I love salted eggs. But still, I didn’t get to taste its real taste, because I ended up eliminating this and that, including the pie crust itself, which by the way, happened to be the very essence of every pie! So I got a Vegetable & Salted Eggs Casserole in the end. Is it good? Well, my tastebud is now used to the blandness of fresh raw vegetables, even craving for it, I can eat them like a pig. But if you’re not fanatic of veggies, you should strictly follow the recipe.
So, guess what, I still haven’t tried this recipe! It’s a curse!
Sausage & Salted Eggs Pie
Source: old edition of Femina Magazine
400 g puff pastry
1 Tbsp oil, for sauteeing
200 g onion, chopped
150 g salami, cut into 1/2 cm stripes
100 g canned sweet corn (sweet whole kernel), drained
150 g green peas
1/2 of green paprika (about 75 g) or 6 green chillies, cut into thin stripes
1/2 of red paprika (about 75 g) or 3 red chillies, cut into thin stripes
1 tsp chilli powder
1 Tbsp parsley, chopped
100 g sausages, cut 1/2 cm thick
4 raw salted eggs
Salt to taste
- Sautee the onions until tender. Stir in paprikas or chillies, continue sauteeing. Add sausages, salami, corn and spices. Stir well, turn off the heat. Set aside.
- Roll the puff pastry as wide as you can. Use it to line a 20 cm pie pan that has been greased with butter and dusted with a little flour.
- Cut the excessive puff pastry so it fits nicely to the rim of the pan. Set the remaining pastry aside for the top.
- Spoon the cooked filling into the pastry lined pan.
- Crack the salted eggs and put them on the filling.
- Top the pie with the remaining pastry. Cut some pastry for decoration if you like, put it on top. Give several punches/cuts on the top of the pastry to let out steam. Brush with egg yolks, bake until done.
What I skipped:
The pastry, salami, canned corn (substituted with fresh corn), sausages.
