This Limerick chef just created bacon and cabbage chips

And he has plans for more.

YOU MIGHT HAVE thought that the taco fries pizza invented last year was the height of fusion cuisine that this nation could produce.

But now we have a new contender in 2016 - bacon and cabbage chips:

Limerick chef Diarmaid O’Connor came up with the idea yesterday, and he tells DailyEdge.ie how it all happened:

I made them at work. The weren’t actually on the menu, I just threw it together as a snack during a lull in service.
I just used a slice of bacon from what I was serving for lunch. But leftovers would do just fine if you want to make it at home.
Diarmaid confirms that the creation is “damn tasty” and reveals he has plans for more:
I’m glad people are interested in it. I’ve a dream to own a catering van, selling people’s favourite mammy dinners, but on chips. In the same style as dressed fries (taco, curry cheese  garlic cheese fries etc.)


Excellent work.
