What to do with four rashers of bacon and little else.
I had some white rolls, but bacon butties for a main meal didn’t seem very filling.
No mushrooms left, and I didn’t fancy beans, tatty cake, or fried eggs.
So, plan B, C, and D were shelved, and I came up with this.
Main item: One jacket potato each.
4 rashers of bacon
2 small onions (home grown)
4 slices each red, green and yellow peppers
1 chicken stock cube
generous splash dark soy sauce
1 clove garlic
cut bacon into very small pieces (to help Hubby’s digestion)
finely chop garlic and onions
dice peppers into small pieces
Put all the above ingredients in a pan with a little water and add the stock cube.
Cook on a medium heat, adding soy sauce once things are bubbling nicely.
Continue to cook until meat is done and veg is soft. There should still be some liquid left in the pan to dribble over your potato.
Time frame for the above coincides with cooking the jacket potatoes for 15 minutes in the microwave (or mee-cro-wavy as per celebrity cook Nigella Lawson if you want to be
I served this with a side of carrots and garden peas, again taking about the same time to cook as the rest.
Hubby had a knob of butter in his potato, and everything on the side, whereas I had my veg on the side and the mix in my potato, so no need for butter.
It was really tasty, went down very well, and even better, NO repercussions for Hubby.
As regards a healthy option and ignoring Hubby’s butter, this should class as a syn free meal as the bacon was lean with all visible fat cut off and the rest is veg. The peas and carrots were easily in line with speed food occupying a third of your plate.
