<Miwa’s tips>※more tips on YouTube!!

・Depending on the bacon you are using, you may not need much salt. Be sure to adjust the taste on process 3!

・You can swap bacon for chicken.

・You can use any milk you have on hand.

・Red miso is not suitable for this recipe. White miso and yellow miso is preferable.

・Please use the potato which will hold the shape.

<Vegan option>

・Simply swap bacon for any vegetables which has a natural sweetness like carrot, leek, corn, pumpkin, and sweet potato. Different kinds of mushroom will work really well.

・Make sure to sauté veggies well with salt before you add any liquid.

<Storage time>

Store it in a air-tight container in the fridge for 3 days after it’s cooked.
