This is an ideal snack, originally a Sicilian street food where it is known as cipollate catanesi . These can be cooked in the oven. Alternatively, they will cook perfectly over a BBQ.
- Spring Onion
- Pancetta (6 or 12)
Cut the root off the spring onions, then wash and dry.
Tightly wrap the 1 or 2 slices of pancetta around one large, or two small, spring onions. To ensure the pancetta stays on the onion, place a few cocktail sticks through the middle.
Cook the wrapped spring onions in an oven at 180 degrees for 15 minutes. Turn halfway through the cooking time, and cook until the bacon is crisp.
Remove from the oven, and transfer to a serving plate, then squeeze over the lemon juice.
