Baking Sheet with Baking Paper


  • Preheat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7.
  • Chop the potatoes lengthways into 1cm slices, then into 1cm chips (no need to peel).
  • Pop onto a large (lined) baking tray. Drizzle with oil, season with salt and pepper, then toss to coat. Spread out in a single layer.
  • When the oven is hot, bake on the top shelf until golden, 25-30 mins.
  • Halfway through, toss the chips with the grated Italian style cheese then return to the oven for remaining time.
Get Prepped
  • Meanwhile, cut the baguettes lengthways down the middle (don't slice all the way through).
  • Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).
  • Place a large pan over medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • Once hot, fry the bacon until crispy and brown, 3-4 mins on each side.
  • Transfer to a plate lined with kitchen paper. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw meat. Cook bacon thoroughly.
Fry the Beef
  • Keep the bacon fat in the pan and return to medium-high heat.
  • Once hot, add the beef mince and fry until browned, 5-6 mins. Use a spoon to break it up as it cooks.
  • Season with salt and pepper. IMPORTANT: Mince is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
Simmer the Chilli
  • Add the garlic and Cajun spice mix to the pan. Cook for 30 secs. 
  • Stir in the passata, red wine jus, ½ tsp sugar and 100ml water (double both for 4p)
  • Bring to the boil, stirring, then lower the heat slightly and simmer until thickened, 7-8 mins.
  • Taste and season with salt and pepper if needed.
  • Meanwhile, crumble the crispy bacon.
  • Move the chips to the bottom shelf of the oven.
  • Pop the baguettes onto a separate lined baking tray.
  • Spoon as much chilli into each as you like into each baguette, then top with the grated cheese.
  • Cook on the top shelf of the oven until the cheese is melted and bubbling, 2-3 mins.
  • When everything is almost ready, toss the salad leaves with the balsamic glaze and a drizzle of oil.
  • Plate up the Cajun chilli-filled baguettes and sprinkle over the bacon crumble.
  • Serve the cheesy chips and salad alongside.
