    Shuzbud's Note:

    A bacon sandwich is a very British breakfast. This is my favourite version of it. The type of bacon to use is back bacon, not the typical American streaky bacon. Everyone has their favourite version of this recipe- this is just my take on a classic! My nephew is a picky eater and this sandwich was his first ever taste of bacon! To make this Weight Watchers friendly, I sometimes use the bacon medallions that have the fat trimmed off- if using these, reduce the cooking time so they don't dry out. This is also excellent served in a white roll with a fried egg.

      Oh, please, what's a bacon butty without a little mayo? One of my very favorite b'fast/brunch sammies, although I had never used ketchup on one. Live and learn! Thoroughly enjoyed. Thnx for sharing your recipe, Shuzbud, Made for the Voracious Vagabonds of ZWT 6.

      Great sandwich!! I used 6 slices of thick-sliced bacon per each sandwich. (The bacon I used was, Patrick Cudahy Sweet Apple-Wood Bacon.) Instead of white bread, I used 100% whole wheat, plus used Hellmann's Mayonnaise on my bread, while I used Burman's Salad Dressing (from Aldi's), on my husband's bread. Needless to say, I prefered the taste of the salad dressing with the bacon, over the mayo. Also enjoyed the combination of the salad dressing/ketchup, added to the sandwich. This made one heck of a hearty sandwich!! The sandwich tasted great with the creamy kohlrabi-vegetable soup we had for lunch. Shuzbud, thank you for posting this recipe. This really is one delicious tasting sandwich!!!
