Bacon Roly Poly Recipe

Ingredients : Serves 4

350 g/12 oz/3 cups self-raising (self-rising) flour
125 g/5 oz/1.25 cups shredded (chopped) suet
A pinch of salt
75 ml/5 tbsp water
3 large onions, chopped
225 g/8 oz bacon rashers (slices), rinded and chopped
A pinch of dried sage

Method :

Mix together the flour, suet and salt. Gradually add enough of the water to make a light dough. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to a rectangle about 1 cm/0.5 in thick and sprinkle with the onions, bacon and sage. Roll up like a Swiss (jelly) roll and curl into a greased pudding basin. Cover the basin and place in a large saucepan. Add boiling water to the saucepan to come half-way up the sides of the basin, cover and steam for 2.5 hours, topping up with boiling water as necessary, until the pastry (paste) is cooked through.
