Bacon Butty with Chipotle Mayo

Bacon Butty Recipe

Olympic Rings

In honor of the opening ceremonies tonight, we thought we would do a traditional recipe from London.  We enlisted the help of my brother-in-law, Brian, who traveled there regularly for business.  He mentioned fish & chips, bangers & mash or shepherds pie…but the recipe that stood out the most to us was a Bacon Butty Sandwich.

Traditionally, the Bacon Butty sandwich is literally just the bacon on bread topped either with ketchup or brown sauce.  We didn’t want to stray too far from the traditional recipe, but we did decide to put a little Extraordinary twist to it.

On the Grill

Of course, I had to smoke the bacon.  This is Canadian Bacon, by the way.  The traditional recipe calls for Back Bacon…which is the same as Canadian Bacon to us Yankees.

I smoked it with apple wood chips, indirect, for about 10 minutes.  This definitely added a yummy smokey taste to this sandwich that I loved.

Once I was done with the bacon, I quickly buttered and grilled some french bread for that extra crispness.  Then of course, Patti came up with a silly delicious Chipotle Mayo that was offensively tasty.  Delicious enough to eat with a spoon, but provided a back of the throat kick that left you wanting more – and a drink of water.

Put it all together and you have an Extraordinarily delicious British-American Bacon Butty Sandwich!

We hope you enjoy the Bacon Butty as much as we did!  Have you traveled to London?  If so, what was your favorite meal?  Maybe we will attempt another recipe before the Olympics are over!
