The perfect bacon butty

Sat Oct 15, 2016 11:42 am

So go on lads. What's the perfect bacon butty?
How is the bacon cooked and what type of bacon is it?
What type of bread and is it toasted? What about condiments?

Dry cured, smoked back bacon cooked in the oven. White non toasted bread, HP sauce.

BLT - same procedure but lightly toast the bread, spread with mayo and add your tomatoes and lettuce.

Emphasis on dry cured btw. Also oven cooked.

I may or may not have had dry cured but always prefer smoked back bacon. Never tried oven cooked only ever really grill it.
Prefer on buttered white toast with ketchup tbh.

If your bacon shrinks when cooking or has that white jelly kind of stuff in the pan then it's wet cured. The white stuff is the water/brine the bacon is injected with.

Dry cured bacon is cured by rubbing salt on it. If you buy from the supermarket the chances are it's wet cured stuff, unless you specifically seek out dry cured.

Bacon butties are gorgeous. Always have mine very lightly toasted and with lots of tomato ketchup :)

I like mine on a barm cake with a little butter and brown source.
