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.

Karaage - Japanese Fried Chicken with Sweet Miso and Sesame Slaw

Fried chicken is one of the true joys in life, it's heralded in many parts of the world and done differently wherever you go. The Japanese version is known as Chicken Karaage and it's absolutely delicious, particularly when dunked in some rich Kewpie mayonnaise, spiked with Japanese seven spice. I've served my Karaage with a simple slaw that I dressed with a really great sweet miso and sesame dressing and some plain rice.

If you've ever thought vegetarian food is slightly dull, hold on to your hats... this simple one-pot dish based on the humble chickpea absolutely packs in the flavour. The soft creamy chickpeas are cooked in a richly flavoured tomato sauce with a good splash of Fino sherry, dried chilli and smoked paprika. The dish is finished with roasted peppers, creamy aioli made with olive oil, a scattering of fresh parsley and a chunk of grilled sourdough.
