I hadn’t ever heard of a Bacon Butty until fairly recently. I saw some blurb somewhere in Saveur about one and I was intrigued. I’ve made Chip Butties before, but didn’t really realize that a Bacon Butty is something I’ve been eating my whole life–Minus the HP (“brown”) Sauce.
As a kid, my mom would occasionally make BLTs for dinner–She loves them. Bacon, lettuce, tomatoes, and mayo. I despise mayo (I eschew most condiments in general), and as a kid, I would never eat lettuce or tomato. I still won’t eat raw tomatoes, unless they’re in a Caprese salad. So, long story short, I’d make a simple bacon sandwich with just bacon and butter. And since we’d usually have fries with them, I’d often dip my sandwich in ketchup.
Which, from what I gather, is the only other condiment allowable on a Bacon Butty. I had a little less than a pound of bacon left over from some potato-cheese soup I made over the weekend, so I fried up the rest of it and made Bacon Butties for dinner.
I did mix my ketchup with some Worcestershire sauce–I’m sure that’s sacrilege, but it was delicious!
Jay agreed that the Worcestershire-ketchup sauce was delicious. I need to find something else to use it on. Or I could just go buy another pound of bacon and make these again!
