Bacon Cabbage & Spuds but not like you remember from Childhood! This is a gorgeous dinner I made when my blog was just under 2 weeks old. I posted it on facebook but It never made it on to the web blog just yet, here it is for you now! These Hasselback Potatoes are crunchy & tasty sprinkled with Rosemary Sprigs & Sea Salt, the Beetroot & Apple Relish compliments the Bacon Fillet so well & the Kale is a delight oven baked & crispy. I seem to have originally blogged it for one but I recall the relish makes plenty for up to 4 people so just double the other elements for 2 or 4 or however many you’re feeding. It comes in at a very reasonable 9 Propoints & 5 on the Filling & Healthy Plan. This is a little bit fancy so would be a good choice if entertaining. I really hope you enjoy!
1 Prime-cut Bacon Fillet
1 Medium Potato
2 Eating Apples (cooking are too sour for this)
1 Medium Uncooked Beetroot
Fresh Curly Kale
Fresh Rosemary Sprigs
Sea Salt & Fresh Ground Black Pepper
Slice the Potato down lengthwise without cutting the whole way through (I find if you place a wooden spoon handle each side of the potato it helps stop the knife from going the whole way through) Fan the Slices out gently with your fingers & gently place the Rosemary Leaves in between the slices, season with Salt & Pepper. Bake in a preheated oven at 200c on a baking tray for approximately 50 minutes or until browning & cooked through. Peel & chop the Apples & Beetroot (be careful fresh beetroot stains badly, I used gloves) and place in a pot of 250ml of just boiled water brought down to a simmering heat. Add the Sweetener, a pinch of ground cloves & a small dash of salt & pepper. Simmer for 30 minutes until soft & blitz with a hand blender to a purée. Place the Kale on a baking tray, spray with spray oil & season with salt & pepper. Roast for the final 8 to 10 minutes being careful to check it doesn’t overcook. Lightly fry the Bacon Fillet on a hot griddle pan sprayed with spray oil for 6 to 8 minutes a side or until thoroughly cooked through. Serve the Bacon Fillet with the Hasselback Potato, top the Bacon with the Beetroot Relish & serve your Kale alongside & Enjoy!
