BBQ Leek and Bacon Parcel in a Parsley and Butter Sauce
3 large leeks and 2 slices of bacon
1 packet easy mix parsley sauce
Cooking silver foil
Large knob of butter
Chop the end off the leeks and then chop off the dark green part of the leeks and discard.
With a sharp knife, slice the leeks at an angle. Gently rinse the leek slices in a bowl or pan with cold water and place on double layer of silver foil. Cut the bacon into small strips and fry or grill until crispy, add to the leeks.
Prepare the parsley sauce according to the instructions on the packet. While the sauce is cooking add the knob of butter.
Now is the time that you can make the sauce your own by adding fresh parsley and or a little garlic or just season with salt and pepper. Allow the sauce to cool and then pour over the leeks and bacon, seal the parcel by carefully folding the foil over the leeks. The parcel is now ready for the barbecue.
Cooking time is approximately 15 minutes when cooking directly over the coals, longer if cooking indirect.
Check periodically by opening the parcel if you wish. You can place the parcel on the side of the barbecue grill while you are cooking the meat.
It's great fun experimenting with food parcels. Try Smoked bacon for even more flavour.
