Toasted bread or not?

Also if its toasted should it have any butter on it and if so how much?

So much butter it drips and leaves a puddle on the plate. Bread. White not toasted.

If toasted. White sourdough. 5mm spread of butter all over.

Sauce: Red on white bread. Brown on toasted bread.

Not SE22, but St David Coffee oppo FH station does a good one for a fiver. (It also serves tea in tin pots, which is nice as you get at least two mugs out of it!)

this is a shout out for Ozzies Coffee Shop in Peckham opposite Barclays, Ask to have the fat cut off you get more bacon then, Ozzie is very generous with the bacon.

(OMG I want one now)

Toasted very, very lightly, not even enough o give it any colour...but enough to give the bread an every so slight crust, to ensure the bread holds its integrity and doesn't go soggy in the face of a small amount of butter, and a large amount of bacon fat...

A toasted bacon sandwich is not a bacon sandwich. Nice and all but not the real thing.

messageRe: Best bacon sandwich in SE22

Come round to mine you've never been there before, bacon sarnie on seeded bread, cushions, red wine, you know you want to, drop what you're doing and get here.

Franklins does a very yummy bacon sandwich smiling smiley

ETA: Not sure if it is still on their brunch and/or bar snacks menu, though.

Fair enough. My own probably aren't in any position to cast aspersions.

I would not worry too much about the Fat content of Bacon.

The far more serious concern is the Salt / Sodium content..

Bacon has virtually no Nutritional value . Highly processed.

What makes Bacon Sandwiches worse is that the Best Bacon sarnies are ones on Plain White Bread.

M&S now sell bacon produced without nitrites.

Nitrites are the cancer causing ingredient in bacon.

Haven't had one for a while, but if memory serves Franklins' bacon sandwich is around a fiver.

Really tasty bread and bacon and a large portion.

Oh, and eating in not take away.

Don't know how much a greasy spoon sarnie is, but it can't be much less than that?

Weve switched to the nitrate free bacon and it tastes great, its more expensive but less water seems to come off it when cooked would be good if William rose started selling it

Also St Davids! Sorry its in se23

Its top quality white bread with LOADS of almost deep fried, thick, chrispy, streaky bacon. Possible slightly mapled.
I can never finish one and take the second half home for the old man.

Their hot chocolate is also good but not as good as gales.
