Gradely Scran

Because life's too short to stuff a mushroom.



Gradely Scran


Sour cream, bacon and chive sauce

Time: 5 minutes

Servings: 2 to 4

Variations: Once, having no chives, I tried it with a tablespoon of finely chopped capers and a finely chopped shallot. It was OK as a standby but the chive version is definitely superior.

  • 1 small tub of soured cream or crème fraĆ®che (125 to 150g)
  • 5 rashers of lean bacon
  • 3 tbsp chopped fresh chives
  1. Grill or fry the bacon in its own fat until it’s very crispy. Drain it on kitchen paper and crumble it into little bits.
  2. Stir the bacon into the soured cream with the chopped chives.

This is very good with salmon baked in foil.
