bacon and onion pudding :)

200g self-raising flour

90ml veg oil

pinch salt

enough cold water to bring the mix together into a dough which comes away cleanly from the sides of your mixing bowl

for the filling:

175g bacon pieces

300g onions

fry these together.

Line your pudding basin withapprox 1 cm thick layer of pastry (keeping 1/3rd for a lid, then fill with the bacon and onion mix, and then use the remaining third as a lid. this will only fill your basin to approximately 3/4 full, but don’t worry, it will grow when you steam it.

Pleat a piece of foil and tie round the top and steam for approx 2-3 hrs in the slo cooker until the pastry is bulging above the top of your pudding basin 🙂

serve with 80g peas per person and 250g potato per person

    • it does look lots less than I thought. Scratches head…

      Maybe this is why ariaarnia found it lacking, and my measurements were off! I’ll check tomorrow! Thanks Aless for all you’ve done, what an angel 🙂

  3. This looks super yummy and a definite make.

    I was given Delia’s Frugal Food for Christmas and I’m working through them with the idea of a blog – we’ll see!

    So far the recipe’s not that frugal, but mostly good and generous portions.
