Bacon sandwich

If it was good for me I think I would eat one a day.

The other week I made myself a bacon sandwich and I used the very delicious bread that comes from my breadmaker but it just wasn't the same as when I used to use sliced white bread.
A few days later to use the bacon up I made one using white sliced, well it was the 50/50 type so almost white. It tasted just right, for me anyway. So in future I shall keep white sliced in the freezer specially for bacon sandwiches. They must also have a bit of tomato sauce in them.

How do you like yours?

Bacon sarnie

Oh Violet... Why did I read your post? I now want one for my lunch... I'm so impressionable! Well the bacon needs to be crispy, the white bread (not thick) should be just lightly toasted and then it has to have just a smidgen if brown sauce on it. A friend was saying she had a surfeit of pears and I was drooling over the idea of Stilton and pear sarnies... But that's just flown out the window. I think the bacon butty wins. Mind you, we're having crispy duck tonight and so I should be keeping an eye on the calories. I'm hungry now... Lunch calls. Shall I say devil get thee behind me... or will the bacon butty win?

Blow the calories Honey, I hope the bacon sandwich won :o)
I might have one for dinner tonight if not I'll have one for breakfast. I'm on my own for a while so I can use the computer as much as I like :o)

Now then Violet Eyes, I feel a bit like Honey! Why oh why did I read your post. Not only can't I get proper bacon I can't the sliced bread for it either! When visitors have brought some bacon it just doesn't taste nor is it the same on Italian bread.

When I'm in the UK and I overdose on bacon sandwiches I like the bacon just short of cremated and dip one slice of bread in the bacon fat left in the pan and put brown sauce on the other slice then put them together!

All animals well here it's probably a good job I can't get bacon!!

Bacon sandwich

Hi Wendy,
Glad to hear all your pets are ok. My boy has been cat napping all day, and he'll soon be sitting on my lap for the evening. I don't mind, it's like having a hot water bottle which is lovely on these chilly evenings.
Anyway back to the bacon sandwich. My Mum used to dip one slice of bread in the bacon fat, I don't because I'm doing my hardest to lose a bit of weight and that extra bit of fat won't help.
I'm having one for breakfast:o)

VE -- I know what you mean about breadmaker bread not being the same for bacon sarnies. I bought my first loaf in over a year a couple of weeks ago when I had a streaming cold. It's squishy. I'd forgotten that about it. For that childhood bacon sarnie you're right - there's nothing to beat it.

bacon sarnie


have to agree - nothing better than a bacon sandwich on plastic bread. But i have become more sophisticated and will munch a half and half bread slices on bacon rashers - that have to be dry cured - known of that icky white grizzle that oozes out of other bacon. I do grill my bacon though, with tomato, as i like a half of tom squidged onto one of the slices of bread, then 2 slices of bacon ontop. YUUUUMMMMMMMM

I need to get out more :o)

last night I bought at least 3 packets of bacon from different shops.
Just eaten a bacon sandwich for breakfast, it was lovely. That will be the last for a while.

Are you sure you should be getting out more? I think you should be staying in more as when you go out you seem to buy bacon!!

Only jesting VE!

My son is coming out at the weekend to help with the grape harvest and he is bringing a packet or two with him. I can smell it already even though I'll have to use Italian bread for the sandwiches. It will be battle to keep the cats off it!

Could your son not bring some sliced bread over as well then you can eat the real thing.
Yes it's the smell that does it. If I didn't open the back door the aroma would last all day.
But the cat would have to cross his legs, not sure he would like that.

My son is here for three days so is only bringing a rucksack so any bread would get squashed.

In this house the smell of bacon would make the cats stay in and hope they would be fed some - not a chance!

sliced white bread

Well yes suppose a sliced loaf wouldn't travel very well in a rucksack. You'll just have to close your eyes and imagine :o)
