    Probably the most widely-used oil in cooking, olive oil is pressed from fresh olives. It's…

  • 200g streaky bacon, cut into chunks
  • 25g popcorn kernels
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter


  1. Put the olive oil in a large, non-stick frying pan with a tight-fitting lid. Add the streaky bacon. Cook for 8-10 mins until the fat has been released and the bacon is crisp, then transfer to a plate using a slotted spoon.

  2. Put the popcorn kernels in the pan and coat in the fatty bacon residue. Cover with a lid and cook until the corn is nearly all popped – about 4 mins). Melt the unsalted butter in the microwave for 10 secs. Once the popcorn has puffed up, coat in the butter and scatter over the bacon and a little salt.

I liked it, but my three dining companions were totally unimpressed with it. I imagine it would be even nicer with a little maple syrup as well to add an element of sweetness.
