Step by step recipe


Stage 1 - 10 min.

Finely slice 200 g belly (streaky) bacon (if not already sliced) and lay out flat on a sheet of cooking parchment. Cook in the oven at 360°F (180°C) for 10 minutes.

This is just to lightly pre-cook the bacon, rather than cook it completely.

Leave the oven on after this.
