Step by step recipe
- 1: If not already sliced, slice the bacon into thin rashers.
Lay on a baking sheet and cook at 360°F (180°C) until nicely browned (about 15 minutes), or cook under the grill.
- 2: When cold, cut the bacon into shorter pieces.
- 3: Slice 150 g cheese (Cheddar here) fairly thinly.
- 4: Wash the potatoes thoroughly (the skins are for eating) and boil them until tender.
- 5: When cooked, cut several vertical slices, without cutting all the way through.
- 6: Slip a piece of bacon and/or cheese into each slot.
- 7: Brush the skins of the potatoes with olive oil to help them crisp up during baking.
- 8: Finish with a slice of cheese on the top, if you wish...
- 9: ...and bake for about 10 minutes, until the cheese has melted.
Serve with a green salad, if possible.
Use fairly large potatoes to make assembling the wallets easier.
You can use smoked bacon, if you prefer the flavour.
