8 - 10 oz bacon pieces
1 onion, finely chopped
for the pastry
9oz self-raising flour
4 oz shredded suet
1/2 level tsp salt
About 8 tbsp cold water
Heat the oven to 200°c (approx 400°f) gas mark 6.
Remove any rind and bone from the bacon and cut the lean meat into small pieces. Put them in a bowl, add the onion mix well and lightly fry.
To make suet pastry
Put the flour, suet, salt and parsley in a bowl and mix to a soft but not sticky dough with the water. Roll out on a lightly floured surface to a rectangle about 16 by 12 in.Brush the edges with water.
Spread the bacon/onion mix scatter on a little shredded sage and a twist or 2 of black pepper (Should be 'nuff salt in the bacon) over the pastry 2finger width shy of the edges. Loosely roll up the pastry like a Swiss roll and seal the ends firmly.
Put onto a piece of greased foil and cover loosely. Place on a baking sheet and bake in the oven for 45 minutes. Open the foil and cook for a further 15 minutes to allow the top to brown. Cut in slices and serve hot with buttered greens and an onion gravy. A good ribsticking winter warmer.
Variants include putting a fine chopped or grated and squeezed tattie in the filling or putting the sage in the pastry. All measures are approx as I tend to do it by sight.
The old way was to wrap the bolster shaped pudding in a floured cloth and boil it for about 2 hours but the oven method works well.
