Norfolk dumpling

[English] plural Norfolk dumplings

A traditional dish from Norfolk in which a pudding basin is lined with suet pastry, which is then filled with layers of sliced onions and good, dry cured, smoked bacon. It is then steamed and turned out of the basin and served with gravy. In fact the dumpling itself is almost like bread. The following day, when it has cooled down, it can be sliced and served with butter, like bread.
