  • Ground black pepper
  • optional 4 Rashers of bacon

Very simple and tasty. I used paprika the 2nd time I made it as I had run out of black pepper & it was delicious.

Nice and wintery, I might try adding something spicy next time just because it's very rich and creamy!

I added a pinch of dried hot chillies and a spoonful of plain, fat free yogurt - quick and delicious!
