So, just what is the ultimate bacon sarnie?
If you think you know, prove it
It's fair to say that the question of just what makes the ultimate bacon sandwich has proved somewhat controversial with hungry Reg Readers.
Our Bauernfrühstück v bacon sarnie post-pub nosh deathmatch prompted a furious scrap over the comparative merits of back versus streaky, brown sauce versus ketchup and butter versus, well, no butter whatsoever, under any circumstances.
Accordingly, we've decided it's time for you lot to walk it like you talk it, and we're inviting you to send us snaps of your personal vision of the pinnacle of sliced pork/bread perfection, so we can put the matter to a definitive reader vote.
It's pretty simple: throw a photo of your creation over to me right here, along with a brief description of ingredients and methodology.
I'll assemble the entries, and El Reg bacon fans will decide what is indeed the best of the bunch.
A word of warning: it's simple enough in this day and age to grab and email a photo, so don't bother sending a missive containing words to the effect "I really do know how to make the best bacon sarnie, but I couldn't attach a snap because I was too hung over/the dog ate my smartphone/the cloud swallowed my picture archive".
Deadline for entries is Friday, 14 September. Only one bacon sarnie variant per entrant please. Don't worry unduly about the quality of your snaps, as long as they give a flavour of your offering.
A prize for the best should be called:
The Sir Samuel Vimes, Commander of the City Watch, Duke of Ankh's Annual Bacon Sarnie Award
The only way to create a great bacon butty is... To do what you like. You'll never get anywhere near agreement on anything as important as a bacon butty.
Re: You don't fry bacon, you grill it...
"It's then best eaten in a brioche bun with mayonnaise and some chopped chives."
You can fuck right off with your foreign heresies!
