Does James May make the best bacon sandwich in the world?

  • Julkaistu 2 kuukautta sitten

    FoodTribe

    The bacon sandwich is a sacred part of British culture, but how do you like yours - industrial or executive? James and Lucy battle it out in the kitchen to see whether making a bacon sandwich 'posh' actually makes it better.

I’m all for a bit of continental titivation. BUT NOT ON A BACON SARNIE………I can also deal with Lucy’s version, BUT THAT IS NOT A BACON SARNIE, that’s at best a blt of sorts. The perfect bacon sarnie, for me, is thick cut smoked bacon, fried in butter until. The fat is crispon lightly toasted doorstep quality white bread, with BROWN sauce. However I am prepared on Christmas Day only to substitute the brown, for a fine cut pickleilly……..nuff said!

Bake the bacon in an oven on a foil lined baking sheet, don't fry in a skillet because the bacon stays flat and cooks evenly in the oven with no mess or splatter. In the US we use toast, mayo, lettuce and tomatoes.

ok, neither, but close to Industrial, give me a couple slices of thick cut bacon. now a couple slices of Canadian Bacon, Texas Toast, buttered on 1 side with Irish butter, now I want 1 slice of either American, or mild Cheddar cheese for 1 side, & the other side a light brush with Stubbs BBQ sauce. similar to the ketchup, but a twang. then fry on both sides, & YUM!!!!

Back bacon is basically smokey ham. Streaky bacon is real bacon with flavor. Of course his would taste better. She made a BLT sandwich with flavorless ham, it looked fancy especially with that homemade bread.

The most important part is to make sure you cross contaminate your bread with the raw bacon.

I hope going forward there is more of this Comedic Duo, I feel like May is in his apsolute element working with Lucy. Also Lucy just being herself is perfect, there is that clear generation difference and it makes for interesting video seeing two different perspectives. All in all fun to watch, educational and best thing to chill to early in the morning with a Bacon sandwich in hand.

Both of them look beautiful, but James wins especially as it's so easy to make. It's got that perfeect balance of salt, tang and sweet from the ketchup, chewiness and crispness of the bacon, melted butter, and limited soft bready resistance from the standard bread. Amazing

Favourite Bacon Sandwich: Crusty doorstop bread, half decent streaky bacon (cooked to "just about crsipy"), and I fry just the outside of each slice of the bread in the same pan as the Bacon. Serve ketchup on the side for dipping.
