THERE are few things more comforting than a nice bacon sandwich, particularly when you come home from the sort of freezing temperatures we’ve been having recently.
That’s why The British Sandwich Association is promoting a ‘bacon sarnie’ as its new sandwich of the month, with Master Chef and author Tom Bridge creating an exciting ‘crispy bacon sarnie’ recipe to try out at home.
The theme this month is ‘Love Sarnies! Love Bacon!’ and the association is encouraging consumers to go to their local sandwich bar and discover for themselves why bacon sarnies are one of the nation’s favourite foods.
To add a little more spice to the occasion, the association has linked up with BPEX’s Red Tractor bacon campaign, which is offering consumers the chance to win £100 of Tesco vouchers in an on-line draw during March.
To enter just visit the association’s consumer website at www.lovesarnies.com.
Try out this recipe at home to create Tom’s ‘crispy bacon sarnie.’
1 soft white breakfast roll or Cinnamon roll.
4 thin slices of naturally cured British bacon
Pre-heat the oven grill.
With a pair of scissors or sharp knife, cut along of the fat side of the bacon to stop the bacon curling.
Place the bacon onto a grill for approximately four minutes either side until golden crisp.
Meanwhile, toast the breakfast bun and butter lightly on both sides.
Place the bacon onto the toasted breakfast bun and serve.
I always use brown sauce for bacon and tomato for sausages.
