SPEEDY, CHEESY LOW-CARB BACON HEAVEN

So this is diet food? Yes, if you’re on a low-carb, high-fat diet. But diet or no diet, give it a whirl because it’s ridiculously delicious and quick to throw together (if you try out this way of eating for longer, read these differing professional views and be sure to get medical supervision!)

What you need (serves 4)

250g streaky bacon, cut into 4cm strips

20g bacon fat or butter

1 cup large cherry tomatoes

250g fresh bocconcini mozzarella balls (or break a big piece of buffalo mozzarella into chunks)

1 handful fresh basil leaves

What you do

Add the bacon and fat to a cold pan, then place on the heat. Keep the heat on medium-low for about 5 minutes to let the fat and juice out of the bacon.

Once the bacon’s crispy, crank the heat up to full, add the tomatoes and stir continuously.

When tomatoes and bacon are looking brown on the edges, throw the cheese balls and basil in, toss for about 10 seconds and serve immediately.

NB: If you eat this immediately, you’ll get the sensation of a ball of cheese actually melting in your mouth. If you’re fresh out of bocconcini, any cheese will do. Brie and Camembert are superb with tomatoes and melt brilliantly.
