Preparation steps

1.

For the dough: Sift the flour into a bowl and make a well in the center. Into the well, add the butter in small pieces, salt, egg and 2 tablespoons of water. Quickly knead and shape into a ball and wrap in plastic wrap. Chill for about 2 hours.

2.

For the filling: Preheat the oven to 180°C (approximately 350°F). Soak the bread in lukewarm water. Squeeze out excess water. Grind pork, fatty bacon and smoked bacon through a meat grinder. Peel and finely chop the shallots and garlic cloves. Combine with the bread, ground meat, egg, and salt and pepper to taste, and mix well.

3.

Divide the dough into 8 portions and roll out each approximately 5 mm (approximately 1/4 inch) thick.

4.

Butter four ramekins and line each with a dough circle. Spoon in the filling and top with the remaining dough. Trim and gently press the edges together seal.  Garnish with remaining pastry and brush with egg yolk. Prick holes in the center of each pie.

5.

Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, 60-70 minutes.

Allow to cool slightly in the ramekins, then remove and serve warm or cold.
