The Mumsnet Rasher

(7 Posts)

Bacon is full of flavour. I have nearly enough bacony recipes that only use a rasher or so each that I could probably feed my family a meal tasting of meat every day for a week with one packet of bacon, or indeed one of those 60p packs of value cooking bacon from the supermarket. I'd like to try it as a challenge.

Day 1:
spaghetti carbonara
Day 2:
batter pudding with gravy and veg.
Day 3:
lentil and bvacon soup (also using the fat from the bacon over the last 2 days)
Day 4:
Baked sweet potato with cream cheese topping and a sprinkle of very crispy bacon on each one.
Day 5:
Bacon and tomato pasta

Any more please? Get me enough to make a weeks' worth and I'll try it and let you know if my family notice.

Just thought of hash: fried up onion, potatoes (the tinned ones are ideal) and finely chopped bacon or sausage, with a fried egg on top. Great for a camp breakfast.

Posted to soon, I bake in the oven rather then steam.

I also do store cupboard sweetcorn pancakes with a couple of bacon rashers.
