Royal Wedding Week: Bacon Butties

Look up there on my Navbar, my Cooking Salon is now taking reservations!

Because Prince Harry ordered Bacon Butties to be served at the close of the huge Wedding Bash in the wee hours Saturday morning, he should be King. I find Harry more interesting than all the Royals rolled into one. He is a naughty boy, but always the life of the party. Bacon Butties are the cousin to our BLT’s which I love but find the Butties a nice alternative. I mean who can deny crispy bacon, thick sliced country bread, and slabs of butter? Some like it with brown sauce or HP sauce, I like mine with just the butter thank you very much. Rumor has it that a Bacon Butty is a sure fire way to cure a hangover, so if you drink too many pints or Royal Engagement Ring Bubblies, practice the Butty System, it will keep you safe.

Bacon Butties
Thickly sliced country bread
3-4 crispy pieces of bacon per sandwich

Spread bread with butter, top with hot crispy bacon, and the second slice of bread. Serve with HP or brown sauce if you want.

    this is so funny – I live in North Carolina but was visiting family in London last week. I attended a sunrise service shortly before having to leave for the airport to fly home. They were serving Bacon Butties after the service and I was so disappointed not to be able to partake and find out what they were as I had to catch a cab to Heathrow. Now I know, and they sound delicious! Thanks for satisfying my curiosity!

    Oh, I love Harry too. All that red hair and freckles. He's adorable. My goddaughter is studying in London this semester and we keep telling her she needs to bump into the boy and bring him home. 🙂
