The Ultimate Guide to Bacon

Bacon Sandwich

Bacon has a texture, aroma and flavor that go well with a wide spectrum of ingredients, sauces, and condiments for making a simple or gourmet, or outrageously elaborate sandwich. Perhaps the simplest way to make a bacon sandwich is to cook three or four strips of bacon until they are crisp and place it in between two slices of toasted bread. Some like to butter the bread first or spread a thin layer of mayonnaise, horseradish, mustard, or honey mustard. One of the most universally popular sandwiches is bacon and egg sandwich. You can use regular fried eggs, scrambled eggs or sunny side up eggs. Layer it with some cheese or use cheese omelet for a heavy and lovely breakfast.

Another popular sandwich loved around the world is BLT, short for Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato, which sums up the ingredients of the perfectly balanced and harmonized recipe. Club sandwich is another classic that includes bacon, tomatoes, lettuce, chicken or turkey, and mayonnaise, and often, scrambled eggs. The sandwich is typically cut up into quarters and held together by toothpicks.

More gourmet versions of bacon sandwich can include fancy cheeses like Brie or Camembert with spinach and egg. Bacon also goes well with grilled cheese layered with apple slices or peach wedges. For a Mexican-inspired dish, layer strips of bacon with guacamole, tomatoes, and lettuce and smoke-dried jalapeno. Salsa also tastes spectacular with bacon and burger, and so does pineapple.

Wrap bacon strips around hot dog and cook it on the grill to make mouthwatering hotdog sandwich. Dress it up with as much condiments as you like such as mayonnaise, mustard, pickle relish, jalapeno, and ketchup. Serve it with some French fries and soda or beer for the ultimate outdoor party food.

Bacon and pickles also go well together in between rye bread, add a slice of cheddar cheese and you have a classic pub favorite. You can’t go wrong with a sandwich of beef brisket with melted cheese and mushrooms topped with crisp bacon slices.
