Nobodies bacon butty is as good as yours. Listen to nobody. The way you are doing it is glorious and fine tuned to your desires. When others make bacon bacon butties for you they are shit arent they?
I’m a bit obsessed with bacon. It’s always there in some format at every important moment of my life. My bacon butty has gone through many changes over the years as I chat to other glorious bacon enthusiasts. I have been in passionate arguments over butty v batch, red sauce v brown sauce, buttered bread, dry bread, thick bread, thin bread…toast (wrong)
This is my current bacon butty. I hope you can take something from it…
Cook bacon slowly in butter
Slice really thick chunky bread, needs to be a loafy cut yourself job.
Here is the ace bit. I remember when I first heard this story and technique. Ever since, it has become an integral part of my bacon butty. I love the idea that I have a little bit of somebodies bacon butty story inside me and it lives on.
That is the story of food, I’m obsessed with people’s food stories and the little things here and there, microwaving wine, sodabread, cooking a chicken upside down, celery salt…just those little things that stem from a story fascinate me
and back to bacon…
Put your bacon aside. Fry your chunky bread in the lovely bacon fat
Meanwhile assemble with red sauce
Put back in the pan with more butter
Sit and enjoy knowing you have lost a day of life, but Oh my gosh its worth it. Crispy bits of bread, goey bits of breads, savoury bacon, sweet redsauce.
Happy times. I’d love to hear to bacon butty story, tell me below
