You can use any cheese for this recipe but I would suggest a strong, robust red, something that will more than hold its own against the addition of chillies and the salt content of the bacon.

Although I reside in Somerset, home of the best cheese in the country I wanted to step outside of my comfort zone and try something that was not run of the mill, hence the Rutland Red.

If purchased from a supermarket as opposed to a butcher you will likely buy a packet of 16 rashers of bacon, simply adjust the ingredients accordingly.
