Roasted bacon-wrapped little gems
( SERVES 4 )
If the bacon rashers are very narrow you may need 6 whole streaky rashers. The bacon and herb covering is also great wrapped around courgettes.
- Preheat the oven to 190C.
- Cut the squash into 6 wedges. Cut each rasher of bacon in half lengthwise.
- Take 1 sprig of each herb and wrap it with a bacon strip around the gem. Place in a roasting pan. Repeat. Season then drizzle with olive oil. Roast for 10 minutes, turn each wedge over and continue roasting until the gem is cooked, about 20 minutes.
- Serve drizzled with maple syrup.
