Bacon ‘w’ Grilled Saganaki Cheese
Again following the pattern with super-simple make-@-home recipes for our little lock-down spell. This is another #BillWallaceFriendly recipe. as it all came from the fridge with no special order being made. This was a sharing platter for Jude Jude and Strawberry Blonde. A great way to get the kids eating whatever you put on the plate but the way, make it. sharing and it will create a little ‘competition’ for the last piece type thing. I put this on the table and 5-minutes later it was all gone. This was ChillaxBBQ Stay@Home Recipes #13.
I had some Saganaki Cheese in the fridge from since forever. This stuff lasts and lasts as it is in a sort of brine in the packet. So. that was being used today, with some streaky bacon and some of those leftover breadsticks. Those breadsticks have been invaluable as a Carb ‘stuffer’ of so many dishes since Stay@Home. I’ll be getting more of them. for sure. They are still super fresh and crispy after a couple of weeks. Altogether, this became Bacon ‘w’ Grilled Saganaki Cheese. So easy. An amazing taste combination together, BFF’s in fact, and how good do they look?
Of course, my darling SCANPAN came out. Onto the hob and get it nice and hot. Dry-fry (no oil) 3-4 rashers of Streaky bacon. That will leak out fat everywhere anyway. Crisp it a little (Strawberry Blonde likes it soft still, Jude Jude likes it crispy) to a hybrid soft/crisp like in the picture. Remove the bacon and put on some kitchen towel to drain off most of the fat. In the pan, though you now have bacon fat. One of the very best flavourful things for cooking with, in my humble experience. So I fried off the Saganaki Cheese on both sides in the bacon fat until nicely golden brown as you can see in the picture. Holy shit this is going to be good.
That’s it, folks. I told you Bacon ‘w’ Grilled Saganaki Cheese was an easy dish. Take a little plank and pile up the bacon. Cut the Saganaki Cheese into cubes and pile that too. Give a squeeze of some fresh lemon juice over the Cheese. This is the BFF part. Super-savoury, smoky and salty bacon, with Sour Cheese. One cuts through the other. Just bloody brilliant. Pop some green shit on the cheese to make it look Chef-like, add the breadsticks and a couple of fresh lemon wedges for colour and additional sour-whizz. Serve away.
