OLDE ENGLISH BACON CASSEROLE

By Food Pot Recipes, Stews & Casseroles No Comments

Many years ago, this used to be called ‘boiled beef and carrots’ – but it was never beef, always bacon! This casserole is really hearty, a little heavy on the calories and carbs but you can always balance that with other lower calorie and carb dishes throughout the day. You can either make it with leftover bacon joint (such as at Christmas) or in this case, we have used unsmoked bacon lardons. Whichever way, it’s a tasty meal! Much of the liquid will be absorbed and reduced, so don’t worry if it looks a lot to start with.

You can buy readymade mini meatballs in supermarkets these days but making your own is more fun and tastier! You need about 6 small meatballs per person for this, but we have cut down the time for the overall recipe by using sofrito sauce in a jar and just adding a few bits to it to make it so much tastier. We have also added a little pasta in the form of broken up spaghetti, just to make the dish more filling if required. You don’t have to if you don’t want to!
