Bacon Butty

Bacon Butty
Recipe type: Main Course
Cuisine: British
Serves: 1
  • 2 to 4 slices of thick sliced back bacon per person
  • 2 slices of hearty white bread, per person, at least 1/2 inch thick, or
  • 1 sandwich roll
  • butter
  • HP Sauce
  • Worcestershire Sauce
  1. Cook the bacon under a preheated oven grill for five minutes at about 240C/475F - turning half way through the cooking time. Keep it far from the flame to prevent fires.
  2. Cook until slightly crispy, but not completely crispy or too dry. You can also fry the bacon, but do not allow it to become brown.
  3. You may toast the bread, if desired or just butter the two slices of bread and place the grilled or fried bacon inside the two slices of bread to make a sandwich.
  4. Add the sauces to taste.
American bacon is very different than its British counterpart. Theirs is much more bacon meat, while American bacon is streaky, with more fat and usually sliced much thinner.

This sandwich is also called a "bacon sarnie" in the UK, and a "pigwich" in Australia. The closest American cousin is the "BLT" or Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato.
