This beloved British sandwich uses a meaty cut of pork from the loin of the pig, commonly referred to in North America as back bacon. Tangy HP Sauce, a popular British condiment with a sweet, smoky flavor, makes a mouthwatering counterpoint to the salty meat. This recipe first appeared in the article Britain's Pride, in the April 2011 special Sandwich Issue.
- 3 tbsp. unsalted butter, softened
- 6 slices back bacon
- 1 crusty round roll, halved and lightly toasted
- 2 tbsp. HP Sauce
Heat 1 tbsp. butter in a 10" skillet over medium heat. Add bacon and cook, turning once, until browned and crispy, about 3 minutes. Meanwhile, spread remaining butter on top and bottom of roll. Place bacon on bottom half and top with HP Sauce. Cover with roll top.
