You know, this is one of those recipes where it'll only be as good as your ingredients. I used regular bacon; next time I'm springing for the thick cut version. I had some hamburger rolls to use up; next time I'll use nice bulkie rolls. I used some mayo & Worcestershire sauce. The kids used Pickapeppa sauce. 2-3 slices per person? Nah, o for at least 4!! YUMYUMYUMYUMYUM!!!! The debate over how well cooked bacon should be....that is a personal preference & will never be answered any more than which is better - Pepsi or Coke? (BTW, Pepsi is worlds better!) I like my bacon somewhat soft but cooked it a bit further for sandwich purposes. Who cares? It's delicious! Just eat it!! Thanks, FT!!
There is something about the simplicity of a butty - whether you have chips/fries, crisps, fish or crispy bacon the simplicty of buttered bread or roll your choice of ingredient and sauce of choice well you have a comfort meal/snack. Thank you French Tart for bringing memories back, made for Aussie/Kiwi Recipe Swap #45 October 2010.
Love bacon, english muffin toasting bread and A-1, never thought of putting them together tho. Crack cocaine of food.
I just made this as a late night snack, but I used 3 regular thin slices of bacon, and cooked the bacon till it was lightly crisp. Served it in between buttered toasted bread along with a bit of Worcestershire sauce, and A-1 Steak Sauce. Mmm, it was good!! Next time tho, I'm going to use 6 slices of bacon per sandwich, and skip the Worcestershire sauce, and just top the bacon with the steak sauce. The Worcestershire sauce is a bit too runny, and has a tendency to make the bread a bit soggy. Thank you French Tart, for sharing this recipe. It makes for a good sandwich.
Life is good indeed when you have a bacon butty! And why is it that it is always better when someone else makes it for you? Hmmm.... When I worked at a Pub, these were a great treat the cook would give us when we had too much to drink the night before! Anyhow, I do love these, especially on fresh rolls with lots of butter, and my guilty pleasure is to put a few chips (french fries) in there too!;) Thanks F.T.!
yummmy. I have had bacon sandwiches all my life but never tried the worcesthire sauce option of a bacon butty. (or HP) Only had worcestshire but slathered it on and what a difference! Forget blt's... well ok i will share time with them, or maybe add the sauce to those as well lol. No pic bc all i had was sandwich bread since some greedy raccoons were sitting sadly all night asking for supper and i was out of puppy chow. gave in and threw them my crusty loaf *blush*
My perfect bacon sandwich: 2 large of rashers of smoked bacon on a buttered ciabatta roll, or toasted English muffin, with optional applewood smoked cheddar (no sauce required). I cook the bacon crispy (but not incinerated) and add the cheese cold, I tried it melted but prefer it this way. Another favourite is the toasted bacon sandwich, on good quality thick cut white bread. Can't beat it with a nice mug of black coffee :-)
French Tart! I can't wait to try this sandwich and I predict it will become a huge it now that your recipe has been featured on PeopleMagazine.com as part of the food at the Royal Wedding 2011! Congratulations! http://www.people.com/people/package/article/0,,20395222_20485958,00.html
I have since tried this sandwich and it is easy and delicious! I didn't have the HB sauce so I used A-1 but I did find it on Amazon so I may buy it for next time.
Firstly I want to thank HRH Prince Harry for introducing THE Bacon Butty into my Lexicon ..what an awesome sandwich to complete a night of hardcore partying.
