The Best Ever Bacon Sandwich No. 3 - The Old English

The Best Ever Bacon Sandwich No. 3 - The Old English

This is the final recipe on my little series of bacon sandwich recipes. It's a combination that's regularly eaten at weekends in our house. There's always a jar of marmalade on our breakfast table and very often a surplus rasher of bacon and a spare piece of toast, the combination is the perfect end to a lazy weekend breakfast.

I actually have to credit this fusion of flavours to my Dad. He was by no means a foodie and a hopeless cook, but he did once suggest that I whacked some marmalade into my bacon sarnie. The bitter sweet flavour of the marmalade contrasted perfectly with the salty bacon and I've never looked back. Asking for a bacon sandwich with marmalade in a café, I have on occasions been met with questions of , 'Are you pregnant?' However, don't let this put you off, it's a winner and even better with a great tasting Seville marmalade!

Recipe No. 3 - The Old English
2 x Slices The Village Baking Co. Sourdough, toasted
4 x Rashers of Bacon (Back or Streaky, it's your choice)
A good slathering of butter
A good slathering of Kate's Garden Kitchen Seville Marmalade

2. Smoother both sides of the toast with marmalade.

3. Lay the bacon in and close the sandwich over. 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.
