Easy Tortilla Breakfast Pie

No need for this easy Tortilla Breakfast Pie to only be served as breakfast ! Serve at dinner time, with either a vegetable side or a crunchy salad.

I love this recipe, as the crust is already done --- in the shape of Tortillas which are layered over and around the inside of the pie dish. Half the work of a traditional pie already done.

This is a huge pie and is enough for at least 6 servings, but served together with a side or a salad, it can be stretched easily to 8 - 10 portions. Depending on your family's ages and usual portions of course.

1 1/2 c

Step-By-Step

1Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a large pie dish.
2Heat the Olive Oil and cook the Ground Beef until done - season to taste with Salt and Pepper.
3Layer the Tortillas in the pie dish, letting the edges stick over the pie dish.
4Scoop half of the cooked Beef into the Tortilla "crust" followed by half the Cheddar - repeat.
5Beat together the Eggs, Fresh Cream. Chili Flakes and Salt - stir in the Onion and Parsley.
6Pour the mixture over the meat and cheese - bake 40 - 45 minutes or until the center of the pie has set.
7If the Tortilla edges browns too quickly, loosely cover - only the edges - with pieces of aluminum foil.
8Remove pie from the oven and leave to settle for 5 minutes before slicing.
