Beef and Bacon Pie

Game of Thrones is back!! Woooooo! 

To celebrate I made a Modern Beef and Bacon Pie that Craig picked out, from the Game of Thrones Cookbook. 

We also found a GOT beer for the occasion! Very hardy he he! 

Also please don't mind my silly videos, it's been a long week. :)

To start I made pie dough (from page 9) using spice, egg yolk, flour, water and butter. I decided to do the pre-cooked crust, but won't next time...that will allow more room to mold the crust around the bacon.
I rolled the dough out with the empty brew he he!
Start creating your bacon lattice, going over and under each piece. Create a large square of bacon and place in oven. Bake for 10 mins and then remove.  
Next, in a pan, cook the veggies-onion, potatoes and carrots. We decided to add in some mushroom and garlic, for a more flavorful taste. Stir and cook until onion is golden.
Add the floured beef and cook until browned. Then mix in the beef broth and seasoning. 
Once well cooked, let the meat cool. Then add to the pie.
 Place to the bacon lattice on top and place in oven. Bake for 40 mins. 
Let stand and serve!
I tried asking Craig what he thought...but all I got was a bunch of mumbles...his mouth was too full of bacon! LOL
Also, after placing in the fridge over night for some tasty left overs, it's easily cut into perfect pie slices. 

Great for serving to guests.
