This is a delicious savoury pie guaranteed to impress at a special breakfast or brunch! Its a favourite of Karen Brimacombe, one of the authors of the Best of Bridge series! Its too large a large pie for just the 2 of us - so I made half the recipe this morning in a Corning baking dish; it required 60 minutes of baking time. Editted to add comments: Since it would be easier to serve from a springform pan, I recently purchased a half-sized one from Dollarama!
