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.

  • 6 slices back bacon
  • 1 crusty round roll, halved and lightly toasted
