- 1 clove garlic, minced
- handful of grated parmesan
- 2 tbs flat leaf parsley, chopped
- 3 – 4 vine ripe tomatoes, sliced
- 5 slices of bacon
- salt and pepper
Heat a pan over low – medium heat and add in your bacon. Cook off until crispy. Remove, drain and crumble.
Drain off most of the rendered fat but reserve about 1 tbs and add in your garlic. Cook for about 1 minute and add in fennel and onions, salt and pepper.

To serve, top with crumbled bacon, parmesan, parsley and tomato slices.
