Spicy Cheese & Bacon Loaf.


If you love cheese and bacon you will love this. It's great served up as a meal or cut up to share at a party.

You will need: 1 Baguette
                       2cup/8oz/240g cream cheese
                       1 red pepper (diced)
                       1cup/4oz/120g mozzarella (grated)
                       1cup/4oz/120g cheddar cheese (grated)
                       1tsp ground pepper
                       2tsp hot chilli flakes
                       3 packs of bacon/jambon cru


First of all you will need to cut the Baguette in half length ways and hollow out the middle.

Mix the cheeses, pepper and dry ingredients in a mixing bowl.

Stuff both halves of the baguette and place the halves back together again.

Wrap the baguette with the bacon or jambon cru.

Bake at 180ºc/350ºf/gas mark 4 for approx 25mins 


Tina made this for us the other night and it went down a treat. You don't have to use chilli if you are not up to spicy food. We use Jambon cru instead of bacon as we are in France and Jambon cru is easier to get hold of (and cheaper). We also use Cantal cheese instead of cheddar.

Give it a go, you will not be disappointed.

Bacon wrapped Jalapeno poppers.

Until recently I hadn't even heard of Jalapeno Poppers. But when we had a glut of peppers from the plants we had growing I did a quick search online to find something to do with them. That's when I came across 'Poppers'. It seems they are quite popular in the USA and this is my own take on them.

For this you will need: Jalapeno Peppers, Thin bacon or Jambon cru, Cream cheese and then what ever filling you want to put with the cheese.



First you will need to take your Jalapenos and cut them along the length, some people leave the stalks on to prevent the pepper from folding outwards. I take the stalks off as I have never had that problem. What you do is up to you! 
Now you will need to remove the seeds and the membranes.

Next step is the Cream Cheese! Here you can try anything, it's just down to your own imagination. I have tried mixing the cheese with Sweet chilli sauce, dried chilli flakes and I have even cut up some hotter chillis and mixed those in with the cream che…

Planning ahead for next year (a Chilli special)

Well this doesn't happen very often! Preparing for next year, getting organised. It's unheard of in this house.
So yesterday afternoon I had a cheeky look on premier seeds website. http://www.premierseedsdirect.com/ And whilst ordering five litres of Chilli Focus fertiliser I got some of next years seeds in. We are going to mainly focus on chilli plants for next year, giving the  sweet peppers a miss and cutting back a little on the Tomatoes.
So for starters we are going to be planting......... Maule Hot, these go up to about 30,000 on the Scoville scale.  So not too hot. Satans Kiss, a small chilli pepper from Italy. The Italians stuff them with Anchovies and Mozzarella, they get to around 50,000 Scoville units. Birds Eye Demon. We have grown these this year and starred in one of our chilli challenge videos........ https://youtu.be/rDdQ8tdd240 They were mighty hot when just eaten raw and have proved to be very useful in cooking, they can get up to 225,000 Scoville units. Scotch Bonnet (r…

Stuffed Chicken, wrapped in Bacon.

Here's a different take on the good old chicken breast. Why not open it up, stuff it and then wrap it in Bacon.
Sound like a good idea? Trust me, they are lovely. 

As with any of these recipes that calls for you to stuff something. The world is your Oyster! Only your imagination limits what you can put in there. 
Tina is a dab hand at making these and this last time she made them I asked her to put a Scotch Bonnet chilli in mine, that gave it some serious heat! 

This recipe will feed two, if you need more you can just adjust the ingredients to suit.

You will need:
2 Chicken breasts
6 Rashers of bacon/jambon sec
Raclette cheese, you can use cream cheese or any other cheese.
1 Scotch Bonnet chilli (optional)

Method/ How Tina does it.

Open up the chicken breast, scoring the side of it with a knife to flatten it out.
Put the cheese and optional chilli on top of the chicken breast. Then roll it so the filling is inside.
Lay out two rashers of Bacon and place the chicken breast on them, wrap the bre…
