These Keto Cheese & Bacon Beef Pies……all I can say is WOW!

These pies are what I would call in car terms a total sleeper.  They look wholesome and boring on the outside but holy shizzle, the crust is made cheese and bacon what’s not to like…seriously!

In this recipe I did use lupin flakes but just substitute with almond meal if you have a peanut allergy or don’t consume legumes. I choose lupin as it is low carb, high fibre and doesn’t raise insulin and not that I have trialed it but I think golden flaxmeal would also work perfect in this recipe.

The fibre content has been amped up with the psyllium, and you can top these with a good cauliflower mash if you want, and surround with a buttery jus.  Now what a “floater” that would be!

No more Aussie than a pie, but to make it a gluten free and grain free, and more tasty than any pie I have ever made that is a big call.

I hope you enjoy

    Delicious pies made with a cheese and bacon pastry! Can you get more Aussie than that?

  • Lisa Mcgrath says:

    These pies are to die for. I used almond meal instead of lupin and they turned out perfect. The dough was easy to work with (I used wet hands) and they are soooo delicious, be a regular on my menu now.

  • Tracey Aberle says:

    Hi there, just wondering if these freeze well? Thanks!

  • Monika Falconet says:

    Can you use lupin flour instead of flakes.

  • Mary says:

    If using a pie maker do I need to pre-bake the shells?

  • Virginia says:

    Also a question re the pie maker: is this pastry rollable? And is hickory smoked bacon easy to find? Thanks, can’t wait to try this.

    • Megan says:

      Hi Virginia, the pastry could be rolled out between two sheets of baking paper, but it is a little less stable to shift compared to a fathead, so maybe freeze for 20 minutes before attempting to lift. Hickory smoked bacon is usually found in the deli at most supermarkets or in pre-packaged amounts in the fridge at supermarkets.

  • Carol says:

    Can I use lupin flour in place of the lupin flakes(don’t have any flakes)?

    Just made these pies…made Curry, Steak and Kidney and Chilli was so delicious..quick question my tops stayed soft is this right?

    • Megan Mad Creations Hub says:

      Hi Karen, I am so glad you enjoyed your pies. My pie lids do cook and are slightly crispy so I am not sure if by soft you just mean not crusty or if it was undercooked for you. It works great too if you omit the top and top with some creamy cauli mash as well.
