  1. Amazing- such an awesome meal full of flavor. Cant go wrong with chicken, bacon and cheese in the same recipe. Slighty too salty – would be perfect without the added salt.

  2. My family loved this recipe. I omotted the salt and only used 6 tails of bacon and found it enough. It will be a regular in our house!

  3. This recpie was okay! But not the greatest.
    I follow the instructions but it was dry and bacon went funny.

  4. Loved it. I could only 450g of chicken mince, so I added a bit of sausage meat. Because I’m feeding a preschooler and baby, I’d probably reduce the herbs next time, maybe 1 tbsp each, and double the sauce, so there is enough to stir through some pasta. But overall it was great. And looked super impressive (browned cheese under grill), and oozing cheese. Having said that, it was the first time master 3.5 yrs has eaten ALL of his tea in I don’t know how long!

  5. What a great meal! As a bloke I’m always up for something easy to make that tastes good and this was both. I added extra salt though the second time cooking this as I found it wasn’t enough the first time. This will be a regular dish in our house.

    Loved this one! Easy to put together, only thing I’d change is the added salt – at least halve it or don’t add it at all, it really doesn’t need it. Otherwise perfect!

  7. I made a 2kg version of the Bacon Wrapped Chicken Loaf tonight to feed my family of 6. It needed just over 4 hours on High to cook through (7l Breville ) and then I transferred it in the oven for 15 mins to crisp the bacon. It was very tasty, happy to recommend it.
    Adjustments to recipe:
    2kg chicken mince
    1 cup breadcrumbs
    3 beaten eggs and a splash of milk
    2 tbsp Italian herb mix
    1 tbsp garlic powder
    3 chicken stock cubes crumbled
    1 tsp salt

  8. This was really easy to make and quite tasty too. I did as the other comments suggested and omitted the salt (it really didn’t need it), and I halved the dried herbs as I intended to share it with my young children. I’d like to try substituting the cheese for a different type, or even using a garlic butter more like a giant kiev, but this was a hit and I’m sure I’ll make it again. I may further reduce the basil and try it with just 1/2 tbsp to see if it’s even more appealing to my kids.

    Also agree with an earlier comment that you could add more sauce and use it to mix in with pasta for kids.

  9. Loved this! Next time I will definitely use less salt, as it was very salty. Overall though really good! Will definitely make it again!

  10. I made this tonight and my very fussy 3 year old granddaughter absolutely loved it. Will definitely be making it again.

  11. Loved this. I used 1kg of mince omitted the salt & used a bread crumb with herbs & also just used mixed herbs, I only doubled the bread crumbs & used 2-3 teaspoons of mixed herbs. I prepared the night before wrapped tightly in glad wrap & had no issues with the bacon not staying. I finished off in hot oven for about 15 minutes to crisp bacon

  12. Hi I’m making this tomorrow night , will leave out the salt.. Just wondering what did other serve it with ??

  13. This was a great hit with the whole family. I used 1kg of mince, omitted the salt and only used 1 jar of pasta sauce. Once cooking was finished I put it in the oven to brown. It feed 4 adults and plenty of leftovers for the next day.

  14. nikki pembleton

    This was a real treat. Hubby loved it. But was way to much salt, should have realised this before dumping the whole 1Tablespoon in, but was amazing and will certainly be making this again.

  15. Did this with turkey was really nice I used half salt but next time will half the dried herbs as they were all you could taste

  16. Just done this again for tea but instead of the dried herbs I added a packet stuffing mix I used turkey and it was just like eating Christmas dinner yummy yummy

  17. I loved this recipe but tweaked it a bit and doubled some of the ingredients as well.
    I cooked 1kg for 3hrs on high then 30mins in oven to crisp up. No salt added as I used chicken stock cubes.

    1kg Chicken mince
    1 cup bread crumbs
    3 eggs
    3 tbsp minced garlic
    3 tbsp chopped chive
    2 tbsp dried parsley
    2 chicken stock cubes
    1-2 cup mozzarella cheese grated
    1 jar Dolmio Bolognaise sauce
    10 slices streaky bacon

  18. This was really nice and very easy to make. I saw above the idea of finishing in an oven for 30 minutes and will do that next time.

  19. Really enjoyed this dish and plenty of leftovers. I only used a little salt & Pepper as well as the other herbs as I thought the bacon would give off enough salt, which it did, but we all have different tastes. Very easy to put together & on reading past comments also like the idea of crisping up in oven for a few minutes which I will try next time. Love anything easy to do.

  20. Unfortunately it was not a hit in our house . 2 Tbsp of the herbs was way too much for us. Also it was dry and dense. Sorry but we will not make this again .

  21. personally, not a parmi fan myself, however, the Missus loves parmies so i thought I would give this a Go…
    Turned out better than I expected after reading some comments, I stuck to the recipe provided here and was quite happy, the only thing I did do was use the tea towel although it isn’t mentioned here to do it..
    I guess I made the right call as there was plenty of Juice in the bowl..
    The flavours exploded in my mouth and I will certainly do this one again in the future..

  22. This was Yum, like most others I tweaked the herbs & omitted the salt… I also changed the cooking time to 4.5 hours on Medium. ( as I was going out for the arvo. Finished off under the grill to crisp the cheese.

    Another great & fairly easy recipe for the slow cooker!

  23. Also to add…. left overs (If you have any) make the best toasted sandwhiches! Woild make it again, just to have toasted sandwhiches!

  24. Was not too bad at all. I over cooked mine as I l cooked an extra half hour by mistake cheese had gone a bit solid ooops but was still nice. Easy to make and very tasty.
