Bacon Wrapped Grilled Peaches with Balsamic Glaze


4 large peaches

12 ounces bacon

60 large basil leaves plus more for garnish

olive oil

balsamic glaze


1. Set a grill to low heat and preheat for 10 minutes or so, brush the grill grates with a paper towel dabbed in oil.
2. Wash and dry peaches. Cut each peach in half and then each half into 4 quarters.
3. Place one large basil leaf on each side of the peaches. Cut the bacon slices in half.
4. Wrap each peach slice and basil leaves with a slice of bacon. Pin the loose end of the bacon slice with a toothpick. Repeat with remaining peaches.
5. Brush the bacon wrapped peaches lightly with olive oil so the bacon doesn’t stick to the grill. Grill the peaches until the bacon is cooked, turning so all sides are evenly cooked, about 20 minutes.
Transfer to a serving platter and remove toothpicks. Drizzle with balsamic glaze.



Grilled Cheesy Potato Volcanoes


3 roasting potatoes

6 slices of bacon

70g cheddar, grated

60 ml sour cream, plus extra for serving if you wish

Small handful of chives, finely chopped



1. Preheat the oven to 200ºC.

2. Rub the skins of the potatoes with a drizzle of olive oil and salt.

3. Place in the oven to cook for about 30 minutes, turning half way to ensure they are crisping all over.

4. Take the potatoes out when they are crisp, and cut off both ends. Scrape out the medium of the potatoes but make sure not to go all the way through the potato so there is still a layer left at the bottom.

5. Add half of the potato filling to a medium to a bowl, discard the other half, then stir in the sour cream, add the cheddar apart from a large handful, and the chives. Stir until well mixed and season to taste.

6. Fill the potato with the cheese mixture and wrap 2 slices of bacon around the potato. Secure the bacon with toothpicks if necessary.

7. Lower the grill temperature to about 350˚F/175˚C and place potatoes over indirect heat on the grill for 30 minutes with the lid closed.

8. Top with the remaining cheddar cheese and cook for another 15 minutes.

9. Garnish with a dollop of sour cream and some green onions.


Bacon and Brussels Sprout Skewers


1 pound bacon

2 pounds brussels sprouts

1 teaspoon ghee

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

Small wooden skewers


1. Cut each strip of bacon in half lengthwise. In a frying pan on medium heat, cook the bacon until it’s partially cooked but still soft and pliable.

2. Cut the brussels sprouts in half lengthwise. Add the sprouts, ghee, garlic powder, and sea salt to the frying pan. Sauté on medium heat until the sprouts are tender and browned.

3. Preheat the oven to 375ºF.

4. Assemble the skewers by threading 1 end of the bacon onto the end of a skewer. Add a brussels sprout slice, and weave the bacon around the sprout and back through the skewer, creating a wave pattern between the sprouts. Move the bacon and the sprout down the skewer, and repeat this process 2-3 more times for each skewer. 5. Bake the skewers in a baking pan for 5-10 minutes, or until the bacon is fully cooked.
