  • 6 rashers rindless back bacon



    Bacon is pork that has been cured one of two ways: dry or wet. It can be bought as both rashers…

  • 1 white country loaf
  • butter, for spreading



    Butter is a dairy product made from separating whole milk or cream into fat and…

  • 3 tbsp tomato chutney
    Apple & cranberry chutney in three jars



    Unlike a pickle which should be vegetable-based, a chutney should be fruit-based. This means…

  • 1 large garlic clove, peeled, cut in half


  1. Heat a griddle or frying pan, then cook the bacon for 3 mins each side or until golden and crisp.

  2. Cut 6 thick slices from the loaf and butter each one on one side. Spread the chutney evenly over 3 slices of the bread and top each with 2 rashers of bacon. Top with the other slices of bread, buttered side down, then press together well.

  3. Return the butties to the pan over a medium heat (you'll have to do this in batches), then toast for 2-3 mins each side until golden. Remove from pan, then rub both sides with cut side of the garlic clove. Cut the butties in half and serve straight away.

Nice but who eats half a buttie?

Absolutely delicious. We didn't have any bread, so improvised with tortilla wraps. Wife doesn't like chutney so we replaced that with Sriracha sauce. Really lifted the whole recipe. Trying to be a bit more health conscious these days, so next time will probably try chicken in place of the bacon.

Used toasted muffins instead of bread (using up things) and added cheese on top of bacon. Got a resounding thumbs up! my 15 year old stepson says they should make them down the railway (he volunteers at a steam rlwy) and that is the highest accolade he can bestow!

Oh my word..! I did this without the chutney, though, and added a touch of chilli powder and dried herbs to the bacon once it had cooked to add some interest to the bacon itself. Sunday morning rescue - hurrah! :)
