miser’s feast



  • A very simple traditional dish from 19th-century Carmarthenshire consisting of peeled potatoes and sliced onions seasoned, covered with a piece or slices of bacon, a small amount of water added and all covered with a lid and simmered until the potatoes are cooked and most of the water absorbed. The potatoes and onions were mashed with a little of the liquid for one meal and the bacon eaten with boiled potatoes the next day.
