Panhaggerty ... it's a one-pot wonder !


This dish is a famous British food from Northumberland, although it can be found across the whole of the northeast of England, (and other parts too) it is sometimes called Panackelty. Pan haggerty is a traditional one-pot wonder of bacon, potatoes and carrots, perfect for warming you up on a cold or cooler evening. It can also be served as a side with some leftover roast chicken...

Ingredients
Serves Six
1 tbsp. vegetable oil
250g/9oz streaky bacon
6 potatoes, (swap with swede for a lower carb choice) thinly sliced into rounds
2 onions, thinly sliced
5 carrots, peeled and thinly sliced
500ml/17½fl oz. chicken stock
150g/5oz cheddar, grated
salt and freshly ground black pepper
crusty bread, ( perhaps a lower carb bread will suit you better ) to serve

Method
1. Heat the vegetable oil in a deep ovenproof pan. Fry the bacon for 3–4 minutes, or until golden-brown and slightly crisp. Remove from the pan and set aside to drain on kitchen paper.
2. In the same pan used to cook the bacon, arrange a layer of the sliced potatoes (swede) in the bottom of the pan. Cover the potatoes (swede) with a layer of sliced onions, then a layer of sliced carrots. Layer over some of the crisp bacon, then season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
3. Repeat the process with the remaining potatoes (swede), onions, carrots and bacon, finishing with a layer of potatoes (swede) on top. Season with salt and pepper.
4. Pour in the chicken stock so that all of the ingredients are covered, then bring to the boil. Cover the pan with a lid and reduce the heat to a simmer. Simmer for 15–25 minutes, or until the potatoes (swede) and carrots are tender.
5. Preheat the grill to high. Uncover the pan and sprinkle over the grated cheese. Grill for 5–6 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbling and golden-brown.
6. To serve, spoon into bowls and serve with some crusty bread* to mop up the juices.

Some may like to serve it alongside some crusty bread*, perfect for mopping up the delicious sauce. However, if you prefer a lower carb bread how about this one here or perhaps this one here

The dish above is from 'The Hairy Bikers' , aka David Myers and Simon King, two northern blokes with a passion for cooking and food, original idea is here

Carbs and sugar the one thing I truly love and need to get out of my diet. I should never had introduced them back after my gastric by pass.....but I did. 12 lbs added back on that I so need to drop again, plus I would love to drop a few more. Hairy Bikers....haha what a name!! I can see driving down the road when several bikers come up to pass you and the hair on the face, head and arms flapping in the wind!! Can you see that?

This sounds reeeeally yummy, but it's still way too hot here to even think about eating something like this right now. Maybe in a few months... :)
