The Best Ever Bacon Sandwich No. 1 - The Elvis

The Best Ever Bacon Sandwich No. 1 - The Elvis

Creating a post about the 'best ever' bacon sandwich may spark a debate. First, there is the age old argument about whether to toast the bread or not. You then run into the 'red sauce' or 'brown sauce' debate and I'm not even going to discuss back bacon or streaky. I am basically throwing the cat amongst the pigeons, ignoring all the rules and going totally off-piste with a short series of bacon sarnie recipes that I think are totally delicious.

OK, I'm just going to come straight out with it, in my opinion, a bacon sandwich needs to be in toasted bread with plenty of butter slathered over so that it melts and dribbles all round your fingers as you eat it. We used The Village Baking Co's epic sourdough bread for this sandwich, which made it even more delicious. Their large family-sized loaf has a wider profile and one sandwich is possibly big enough for two.

Let's face it, eating a bacon sandwich will not tick any health boxes, but every now and then, it's worth treating yourself so don't hold back, lay everything on good and thick. 

Recipe No. 1 - The Elvis
Serves 2
2 x Slices of The Village Baking Co. Sourdough
4 x Rashers of bacon (your choice on streaky or back bacon)
A good slathering of butter
A good slathering of Manilife Crunchy Peanut Butter
A good slathering of Karimix Sweet Pepper Chilli Jam
Some rocket, spinach or watercress

1. Grill the bacon to your liking and toast the bread.

2. Butter the toast and slather on the peanut butter, both pieces of toast need to be coated.

3. Lay in the bacon and drizzle plenty of Karimix Sweet Pepper Chilli Jam over the bacon.

4. Top with some salad leaves and the other side of toast. Enjoy.

I keep reaching for our delicious Pickled Lemon Paste. It's intense lemon flavour provides a great lift to so many dishes whether it's a stew, sauce, dressing or marinade. This little salad is really quick and simple to prepare. The liquorice flavour of fennel is perfectly suited to carrying strong flavours...

In the middle of winter this recipe is warm and comforting. In China, this dish, which is famous in the Sichuan province, is called 'Shui zhu niu rou' - yes I'm struggling to pronounce it too, but with Chinese New Year in freezing cold, wet January, it seems like a good moment to make it. This recipe is like a beef stew with the added benefit that it all comes together in less than 10 minutes (with about 20 minutes of prep).

When it's cold and rainy this beef ramen recipe has magical reviving properties, it's like nestling into an enormous sheepskin rug in front of a roaring fire on the grimmest of winter days.
