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.

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

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!

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..

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 .

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.

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.

Anyone done this with beef mince.

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

Yummo also cooked some pasta and used the sauce for the pasta ?


July 6, 2016

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

July 3, 2016

How long did it take people to cook the 1kg version?


July 1, 2016

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

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.

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.

Easy and kept the whole family happy! I only used half the amount of salt and was perfect.

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

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

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


June 12, 2016

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

This was sooo yummy! Very easy to put together. Will be making it again forsure!!

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.

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

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!


May 22, 2016

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 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!

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


May 11, 2016

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!


May 11, 2016

Was delightful, I agree, will leave out the extra salt next time but the kids licked their plate clean.


May 3, 2016

Can you do this as a dump bag? Or will the cheese go weird


April 24, 2016

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.
