This is THE Ultimate Bacon Sandwich. You’re welcome.June 17, 2016
We really do want the best for you. And what’s best? Well, it’s simple really. We want you to have the ultimate bacon sandwich.
Bacon on a sambo is always going to be delicious, but there comes a time when the dreamers dream, when the muse of creativity descends upon us, and gifts us with an idea so well rounded in its smoky, salty perfection, that we must collectively rise above and produce an iteration of the humble bacon sarnie so delightful its legend shall become renowned for miles around. Now is just such a time.
First things first, if you’re not cooking your bacon under a grill, you’re never going to make the ultimate bacon sandwich. Get that grilling tray in pan, pop in your bacon and behold, as the crispiest rashers you’ve ever seen in your life emerge after only 10 minutes. Plus, all the excess fat runs off into the baking tray underneath, so this is practically a salad now. Ditch that messy, oily fry pan and start living your best bacon self!
The secret to this delectable sandwich is that it’s so much more than just bacon. we’ve grilled it with honey for a perfect two part harmony of sweet and smoky flavours, added some melted sharp cheddar and finished this über snack with our favourite hot sauce, Sriracha. Of course, you could use any hot sauce of your choosing – tabasco would be delicious as well, and our friends in the UK like to use Econa West Indian Hot Pepper Sauce. This is the ultimate bacon sandwich after all, but for it to be yours, there should be some room for interpretation.
