  • 4 rashers back bacon rinds removed and diced
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 1 1/2 oz margarine or butter
  • 1 oz plain flour
  • 1/4 pint milk
  • 1 teaspoon dried mixed herbs
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • 2 oz fresh white breadcrumbs
  • vegetable oil for deep-frying


  • Melt the margarine in a small saucepan, add the bacon and onion and fry over moderate heat for 3 - 4 minutes.
  • Sprinkle in the flour and stir over low heat for 1 - 2 minutes until straw- coloured. Remove from the heat and gradually stir in the milk.
  • Return the pan to the heat and cook for 2 - 3 minutes, stirring all the time until very thick and creamy. Remove from the heat and leave to cool.
  • Stir the herbs into the mixture, divide into 8 equal portions, then form each portion into a ball. Put the egg and breadcrumbs in separate shallow dishes.
  • Roll each ball in the egg, then coat with the breadcrumbs.
  • Heat enough oil to cover the balls in a deep-fat frier to 180C/350F or until a stale bread cube browns in 60 seconds. Add the balls to the oil a few at a time and deep-fry for 2 - 3 minutes until golden brown on all sides.
  • Drain the crispies on absorbent paper and serve at once.
