Father’s Day is once again upon us and my 4 year old and 2 year old daughters are looking forward to treating their beloved Daddy. Just earlier today we took a trip to our local shops to buy some pressies (shhhhh we can’t say what they are) and they’ve also made some very creative cards.
However, this is by no means the main event of this coming Sunday. What they’re really looking forward to is presenting Daddy with breakfast in bed, featuring THE PERFECT BACON SANDWICH.
I’m a vegetarian myself and have never understood bacon-worship. However I understand it’s the best treat ever on a Sunday morning for most meat eaters. My daughters and husband (actually the rest of our wider family too- so just me, then) love it.
I did a bit of research and here are what I think are the ingredients for the perfect bacon-butty:
- Two slices of soft and fluffy white bread, such as this delicious specimen from Roberts Bakery.
- Some unsalted butter, softened
- Pack of unsmoked back bacon
- Smidgen of tomato ketchup
My husband likes the bacon crispy, but not too crispy, which is quite a difficult feat for a vegetarian who doesn’t really know what she’s doing with bacon. However, I always give it a good go and mainly get it right.
It also important to note that the perfect bacon sandwich is purist- no lettuce, tomato, egg or other nonsense. Pure bacon.
Let’s hope I get it right this Father’s Day and it starts with the bacon sandwich from heaven! Check out the Roberts Bakery guide to the perfect bacon sandwich.
