Rice and Bacon-stuffed Marrow
Recipe by Mrs C. Shaw, Amaroo
1 medium sized marrow
8 oz. bacon
2 oz. onion
4 oz. rice
1 green pepper
8 oz. tomatoes
1 1/2 oz. good dripping
Salt and pepper
Peel marrow. Cut long wedge out of top. Cut wedge into four pieces and discared one. Remove all marrow pips. Season inside. Dice all but two rashers of bacon, reserving these for garnish. Peel tomatoes and chop them, the green pepper and onion, roughly.
Fry bacon, onion, tomato and green pepper until slightly brown. Mix vegetables, rice and salt and fill marrow - not too tightly as rice swells as it cooks. Replace three chunks of marrow on top.
Wrap in foil, bake at approx. 400F for 30-40 minutes. Unwrap, garnish top with strips of reserved bacon, cook further 15 minutes, unwrapped. Serve on bed of spinach, as below.
SPINACH: Wash thoroughly approx. 3 lbs. spinach. Boil in salted water about ten minutes, until cooked. Drain well, and chop on board finely. Rinse spinach pan and melt 2 oz. butter gently. Add spinach, a tablespoon of cream, pinch of nutmeg, salt and pepper. Heath through and serve on a large dish, under marrow.
