Step 1: You will need

  • 320 g bacon
  • 8 tbsp water
  • 1 onion
  • 220 g self-raising flour
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 120 g shredded suet
  • 1 bowl
  • 1 rolling pin
  • 1 chopping board
  • 1 kitchen knife
  • 1 scissors
  • 1 baking tray
  • 1 pastry brush
  • 1 fork

Step 2: Preparation

Chop and finely dice the onion. Take the scissors and cut the bacon into small pieces.

Next, put the self-raising flour into a bowl, add the suet on top and mix them together with a fork.

Add the water very gradually until a soft - but not sticky - dough forms.

Step 3: Make dough base

Sprinkle flour onto your work surface. Remove the dough from the bowl and roll it into an oblong shape.

Step 4: Add bacon and onion

Cover the dough base with bacon and onion, leaving a 2 cm edge clear all round.

Step 5: Roll the roly poly

Using the pastry brush, dampen the edges with water. Ease the dough away from the work surface and roll it, dusting it with extra flour if necessary.

It will end up in a cylindrical shape, Swiss Roll style. The dampened edges will help keep it bound together.

Step 6: Place in oven

Place the roly poly in an oiled baking tray and into an oven preheated to 200C. Bake for 25 minutes.

Step 7: Serve

Remove the cooked roly poly from the oven and transfer to a plate.

Slice into 4 equal pieces and serve.
