Bacon Leek Rolls - recipe
Ray Morand’s Bacon-Leek Rolls
8 slices Canadian bacon
6 young leeks
Trim bacon and lay three or four pieces side by side with edges overlaying. Press overlapping sections gently to stick and brush with cornstarch. Trim leeks. Place three leeks at one end of bacon sheet alternating tops and tails of leeks. Carefully roll leeks in the bacon.
Tie the rolls securely with white cotton string. Put a little oil in a frying pan and heat over high heat. Place the tied rolls in the pan and fry, turning about seven minutes, until bacon is cooked and leeks are tender. Repeat with remaining rolls. Remove the strings and cut the rolls into ½ inch slices.
Arrange in the center of a delicate porcelain plate, garnish with parsley.
