We all know how to make a simple BLT Sandwich. Slices of bread, a few rashers of bacon, some salad leaves and we’re good to go. However, if you want to make it a bit more special then I urge you to try Ed Baines’ version from his latest book, The Best of British.
One new technique that I’ve learnt from this recipe is to grill the bacon on top of the bread under the grill. The thought never even occurred to me but it makes sense. As the bacon fat slowly trickles into the bread there is no need to butter the slices afterwards and as an added bonus the bread is toasted. The mustard also gives the sarnie a tasty touch. With a little more effort it makes one super rewarding meal.
