Tips and Hints
- Shoulder bacon is well priced and has a good meat to fat ratio so it is good to use in recipes like this, but you can use any bacon that you have available.
- If you don’t have fresh basil leaves but like the flavour, then substitute with a few dollops of readymade basil pesto.
- Red onion has a lovely mild flavour but you can use a brown onion instead.
- Serve 5 for under $15
