Savoury Pie


  • 6 ounces of haricot beans
  • 1/2 pound of onions
  • 1 pound of tomatoes
  • 1/2 pound of parboiled potatoes
  • 2 hard-boiled eggs
  • 1 teaspoonful of herbs
  • 4 ounces of butter
  • 1/2 pound of fine wheatmeal
  • pepper and salt to taste


Have the beans boiled the previous day, place them in a pie-dish, chop up the onions and boil them in a little water until soft, cut the potatoes in small dice, slice the tomatoes, cut up the eggs, and mix all the ingredients thoroughly in the pie dish, adding the herbs, 1 oz. of butter, and seasoning. Pour over the mixture 1 pint of water, and let it cook for 1 hour in the oven. Make a paste of the wheatmeal, the rest of the butter and a little cold water, cover the vegetables with it, and bake the pie 1 hour in a moderate oven.
