Prunes in blankets ( Prunes wrapped in bacon)

While my bofreind was tucking into his breakfast on Saturday , bacon, egg and black-pudding,  I was pondering what to do with any leftovers from the pack of bacon

In a blinding flash I remembered that my mum often cooks prunes wrapped in bacon and we had some prunes leftover from the Lamb slow cooked with prunes dish a few weeks back. The combination of  sweet & saltiness is delicious. So I made some  for Sunday brunch accompanied by skewers  of scallops and black pudding for good measure.

The wrapped prunes make a luxiourous brunch but also make excellent canapes hot or cold . 


Prunes in blankets

6 sprigs of rosemary
6 large prunes
3 rashers of smoked bacon

  1. Cut each rasher of bacon in half
  2. On each half place at one end a prune and a spring of rosemary
  3. Roll the prune/rosemary into the bacon
  4. Grill for approx 5 minutes turning halfway through

Scallop and Black Pudding Skewers

6 scallops
6 discs of black pudding ( roughly the same diameter as the scallops , 1/2cm thick  )
6 stems of woody rosemay

  1. Season the scallop and black pudding with pepper brush with oil
  2. Skewer scallops and blackpudding  through the centre with woody stalk of rosemary
  3. Grill for 2 minutes
  4. Serve with a spalsh of balsamic vinegar

  1. What a cute and interesting idea! I’m not usually a fan of prunes, but with the bacon and rosemary I’d definitely give it a try!

    Nice one!
    The same method but with Banana (instead of prunes) is also awesome =)
