How to use up leftover smoked bacon

  • Pasta bake
    Heat the oven to 200°C/180°C gan/gas 6. Fry 6 smoked bacon rashers until crisp. Cook 400g penne until al dente, then drain and tip into a baking dish with a 500g tub of fresh cheese sauce. Break the bacon into shards, stir into the pasta and season. Top with grated cheddar, then bake for 30-40 minutes until golden and bubbling.
  • Bacon scones
    Heat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas 7. Fry 12 bacon rashers until crisp and golden. Cool, then break into small pieces. Stir into a basic savoury scone mix (search ‘classic scones’ at deliciousmagazine.co.uk), just before adding the liquid, then bring everything together into a dough. Shape and bake as in the recipe.
