COOKING EQUIPMENT
1 medium frying pan
1 casserole dish

PREPARATION
Cut the streaky bacon into rough squares.
Peel, top and tail and finely chop the onion
Peel, top and tail and slice the carrots
Peel and finely chop the garlic
Make the bread crumbs, use a food processor or lightly toast and crumble with your hands

Method

Heat the olive oil in a frying pan to a medium heat and add the sausages.

Keep turning them often as they cook. You want them to be browned on all sides, it makes them look far more attractive when the dish is served. This should take around 10 minutes.

Set the oven pre-heating to 170C / 325F / Gas Mark 3.
 
Streaky bacon being fried Take the sausages from the frying pan and put them in the casserole dish. Turn the heat up a bit and add the streaky bacon to the frying pan.

Toss the bacon round the pan as it cooks. After about 5 minutes the edges will go brown and slightly crispy.

 
Take the fried bacon from the pan and add it to the casserole dish. Turn the heat down medium low and add the chopped onions.

Cook for about 10 minutes, turning frequently, until they have softened but not turned brown. Add the chopped garlic and cook for a further minute.

Onions frying
