Low fat pork and egg pie - perfect for slimming and weight loss.
Snacking, grazing, or simply lunching is sometimes a challenge when you are following a specific diet or meal plan. It's often difficult to find something healthy, filling and tasty in your fridge that you can immediately eat.
Whatever drives you to want to open the fridge and stare for inspiration, this pork and egg roll is perfect. It's great as a snack or meal for the family too. All too often we gaze at that Pork and Egg Pie in the supermarket and it looks so good, but also fatty and high in carbs.
This pie is none of these - low in carbs, lower in fat, and yolk in every slice. What more could you ask for?

- Add 5 of the eggs to a small pan, fill with water and bring to boil. Boil for approx. 6 mins or until hardboiled.

Now for the casing. On a flat clean surface lay two of the pieces of paper that protect the
Lo-Doughoverlapping each other.
Place two pieces of
Using a little water dampen where they overlap, then cover with two more pieces of paper. Using a rolling pin, roll over the
Lo-Doughfirmly pressing down to form a proper seal and to compress all over.
Remove the top two pieces of paper and lay under the sides. Taking the final piece of
Lo-Dough, cut it in half and lay both pieces opposite each other, again overlapping. Dampen where they overlap slightly, cover with paper and roll until sealed.

Lo-Doughforming a trough in the centre to hold the eggs.
