Scottish Recipes - Stoved Bacon and Turnip

This is a very simple vegetable and meat accompaniment dish which should go well with roast chicken or game.

Stoved Bacon and Turnip

1 Large Turnip (Swede), peeled and cut into slices 1/4 inch thick
8 Rashers of smoked bacon
1 small onion, sliced thinly

Gently fry the bacon in a large saucepan for two minutes (VERY little oil, if any should be required). Set the rashers to one side. Build up alternative layers in the saucepan, starting with 2 rashers of bacon with a little onion, followed buy a layer of swede (turnip) slices. Repeat process until all ingredients are used up.

Add 2 tablespoons (you may require slightly more dependent on the width of your pan-do NOT over water) of cold water and simmer gently over a low heat until cooked through.
