Bacon and onion crispies

Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient
4 Slices of bacon diced
1 Small onion minced
3 tablespoons Marg. or butter
¼ cup All-purpose flour
½ cup Milk
1 teaspoon Dried mixed herbs
1 Egg, slightly beaten
1 cup Soft white bread crumbs
Vegetable oil for deep
Frying

Melt the margarine in a small saucepan, add the bacon and onion and cook over moderate heat for 3-4 minutes. Sprinkle in the flour and stir over low heat for 1-2 minutes until straw-coloured. Remove from the heat and gradually stir in the milk. Return the pan to the heat and cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring all the time until very thick and creamy. Remove from the heat and leave to cool completely. Stir the herbs into the mixture, divide into 8 equal portions, then form each portion into a ball. Put the egg and bread crumbs in separate shallow dishes. Roll each ball in the egg, then coat with the bread crumbs.

Heat enough oil in a deep-fat fryer to cover the balls to 350 degrees or until a stale bread cube browns in 60 seconds. Add the balls to the oil a few at a time and deep-fry for 2-3 minutes, until golden brown on all sides. Drain the Bacon and Onion Crispies on absorbent paper towels, then serve.
