This casserole is really delicious and different!!
  • 1 cup of bulgar(bulgur, bulghur..) wheat
  • 2 med-large potatoes
  • 300g/10,5oz carrots
  • 100g/3,5oz smoked bacon, well cooked and crumbled
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 2 bayleaves
  • 1 egg
  • 100-150g mozzarella, sliced
  • bread crumbs
  • grated parmigiano
  • Provencal herb mix (or mixture of rosemary, thyme, majoram, oregano)
  • s&p
  • evoo
1. peel and cut potatoes and carrots in small cubes. Boil them with just enough water, garlic and bayleaves for about 5-6min. Drain, remove the bayleaves and mash them in a large bowl.

2. Toast the bulgar in a skillet dry, as soon as they take on a golden colour and you start to smell the toasted aroma (be careful not to burn them, which can happen quite quickly) pour 1 cup (or same volume of the bulgar) of water. Mix well. When the water is boiling and get well absorbed by bulgar (only takes a few minutes) cut the heat.

3. Blend in the bulgar, egg, bacon, salt & pepper into the mashed potatoes/carrot mixture.

4. Brush a baking pan with evoo, then sprinkle breadcrumbs on the surface. Then lay out 1/2 of the bulgar mixture evenly. Lay out the sliced mozzarella to cover the surface, then spread out the rest of the mixture over the mozzarella. Cover the top with a mixture of the breadcrumbs and parmigiano.

5. Bake in the oven at 200C/400F for 20minutes, or until golden brown.

Some idea for a little variation. This was delicious as is, but the next time we would like to try it with some chopped and sauted scallion and/or mushrooms.

This thread is a treasure trove!
My youngest daughter never wants to eat veggies, but will eat this:

Finely grated raw carrot mixed with a bit of orange juice. It's pretty, it's easy and it's healthy. You can add raisons to this - they plump up with the carrot/orange juice after a day in the fridge.

Along the same lines:
Coarsely grated carrot, finely chopped scallion and a bit of mayonnaise...

Coarsely grated carrot, coarsely grated (raw) beetroot & a bit of orange juice (sounds weird but it works).
