Root Veg and Bacon Hash

I love buying stew packs of vegetables. They are such good value and full of delicious root vegetables. There are so many different meals that you can make with one simple bag of vegetables. Today I am sharing one of our favourite meals. This dish can be made using any left over vegetables that you may have after a Sunday dinner or you can pop to Aldi spend just £1.39 on a stew bag and make a hearty meal that is well within budget!

This is what I did...

Root and Veg Bacon Hash - Serves 4


12 rashers of Specially Selected outdoor bred oak smoked streaky bacon, chopped
British Stew Pack - 7 carrots, 1 onion, 2 parsnips and 1 swede, all chopped
300g Charlotte potatoes, chopped

Spray oil
organic eggs
1/2 tsp mixed herbs


1 - Steam the potatoes, carrots, parsnip and swede for 20 minutes or until soft

2 - Spray a little oil in a large frying pan or saute pan add the onion and streaky bacon and fry over a medium heat for 5 minutes

3 - Add the steamed vegetables and continue to cook for a further 5 minutes, stirring regularly

4 - In a separate frying pan fry your eggs to taste

5 - To serve place the root veg and bacon hash on a plate and top with an egg

The ingredients for this meal cost just £5.16
  • £1.39 - Stew pack of vegetables
  • 79p - Charlotte potatoes
  • £1.59 - Streaky bacon
  • £1.39 - 6 organic eggs
After making this meal I still had carrots, potatoes and 2 eggs for another meal. I am sure that you will agree that is great value for money!

This is a meal that the whole family will enjoy and a great way to get some extra vegetables into the children's diets.
