Serves 4 to 6 people
8 pieces of smoked bacon (could use ham or unsmoked)
1 white onion roughly chopped (I use large)
1 tablespoon mustard (I use English)
1 beef stock cube
240g flour (self raising or plain work just as well )
Small handful of cheese cubes
Mix suet and flour together in a bowl and using your fingers rub the suet into the flour then gradually add enough cold water to bring together into a dough. If too sticky add a little flour until you could roll the dough out
Flour your surface (I do this on parchment paper to avoid too much mess) roll the dough out to a square about 30cm by 30 cm ( doesn’t matter if it’s not perfect just try to avoid tearing it )
Spread the mustard over the dough then place the bacon lengthways across the dough. Sprinkle the onion (mushrooms and cheese if using) over the bacon .. a couple of grinds of pepper and then crumble the stock cube over
Now from the edge nearest to you start rolling up the dough (like a Swiss roll or roulade, and the parchment if using can help!) Once you have a nice sausage which should be relatively tight fold in your open ends and place on to a baking tray on baking parchment or grease proof paper into an oven at 180 degrees for 30 to 45 minutes .. check the middle is piping hot with a knife and the top should have a nice light brown with a slight crust to it
Cut into slices.
I Serve with green veggies and beef gravy.
You can fridge this and reheat in the oven (wrapped in foil) or in a microwave. You can also freeze it once cooked and then it makes a lovely evening meal that’s super quick
