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

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

2. Smoother both sides of the toast with marmalade.

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

Beef Rendang

An Indonesian street food classic and one of the tastiest dishes on the planet. Chunks of beef gently simmered in coconut milk with lemongrass, galangal, cardamom, cinnamon and lime leaves, the flavour combination is sensational. Unlike many other 'wet' curries, Rendang is cooked until most of the liquid has reduced, concentrating the flavours and making it super tasty.

Pinsa Romana with Calabrian Peperoncini, Fior di Latte, Mushrooms

The Italian region of Calabria is famous for sprawling beaches with turquois water, mountains, rolling hills, orange and lemon trees, yet it remains one of the least visited regions. Agriculture is strong in this area and the climate is perfect for growing beautiful spicy chilli peppers that feature in lots of the regional cuisine. They are delicious when used in pasta sauces, stews, used to top grilled cheese or as I've done here, used to top one of our amazing pizza bases.
Gnocchi alla Romana
Gnocchi alla Romana

I have eaten lots of different gnocchi dishes, some stuffed, some fried and some baked, I love them, just avoid the gnocchi sold in supermarkets! A wonderful Italian friend of mine - Anna has been telling me that I should try Gnocchi alla Romana - it's made with semolina rather than potato...
