Brace yourself. Today, I made a savoury dish! It's out of the Hairy Biker's second diet book. So, you can justify eating a massive portion because it's only 320 calories (when it serves 4.)
200g bacon, sliced
2 onions, thinly sliced
a splash of oil
5 medium carrots, chopped
6 medium potatoes, sliced
500ml chicken stock (made from 1 stock cube)
100g mature cheddar cheese
1. Trim the fat off the bacon. Mist a large pan and heat. Add the sliced onion and bacon. Cook for 8-10 minutes until the onions start to softened and begin to colour. Once cooked, remove the bacon and onion from the pan.
2. Lay half of the sliced potatoes in the bottom of the dish. Spread a third of the bacon mix on top. Sprinkle half of the carrots on top. Then add the rest of the bacon mix. Add another layer of carrots. Then add the remainder of the bacon mixture and top with the rest of the potatoes. Pour the stock over the dish.
3. Bring to the boil and then turn the temperature down to a simmer. Leave for about 30 minutes until the veg is cooked through.
4. Sprinkle the cheese over the top and pop it under the grill, until the cheese is melted and turns golden.
Serve with some fresh greens or peas.
This dish is absolutely delicious. Perfect Winter one-pot dinner. Hopefully I'll be able to post a few more pies and savoury dinners soon! X Bo
