Wow! It's has been more than a month since my last update. I had been busy for the past few weeks. Had lots of activities - gatherings (at my place, so lots of cleaning and cooking), birthday celebrations, get-together with relatives coming back to Singapore to visit, kids' school activities, then the kids were sick and now I'm sick. But anyway, this update shows that I'm still very much alive. Did anyone miss me? :P Just a quick post 'cause I'm still not very well. I have been coughing my lungs out. :( This is a kid's favourite and I bet it will be a great finger food for parties. The basic ingredients are streaky bacon and fish paste. I have added grated carrot here though you can't really see it. Shorten the streaky bacon by cutting it in half. Spread some fish paste on it and roll it. The ends of the bacon should be touching or overlapping each other a little. If you would like to add in some chopped or shredded veggies or mince meat, mix them in the fish paste first before spreading on the bacon. Do not put it too much fish paste as it will expand and the bacon will shrink a little when cooked, then the bacon may burst open - not very nice visually. ;) After that, pan fry it with the ends of the bacon facing down on low to medium fire and don't add oil. Once the ends of the bacon had 'stick' together, turn to other sides and continue cooking till the fish paste is cooked. Alternatively, you may want to steam it first before pan frying it. It's faster to cook and healthier too. But do remember to use toothpick to hold the bacon together. Before serving, dab the bacon nuggets with paper towels to remove excess oil. And there you have it, Bacon Nuggets. Enjoy!
