Bacon is the cure for vegetarianism
Way too salty for my tastes, it was a good idea in the era before good refrigeration as it kept longer, but there is no need for it today. I prefer fresh meats to salt cured meats.
So who is the third no voter that is currently skulking in the shadows, step forth heathen and state your case, we won't eat you. We have plenty of bacon.
I've never liked HP sauce (too sharp) so have never had it with bacon, always ketchup. Does HP really go well with bacon?
Yes.......though Reggae Reggae sauce isn't bad either as an alternative.
It's Diiirty, the smell makes me bilious, yes I have ate it and it was rank!
i love bacon ... american bacon is a fave!!! - gotta be fried though - none of this incipid microwave stuff or 'grilled'
Wow the thought to microwave it wouldn’t have even entered my head. Oh the thought alone makes me feel sick.
If you like American bacon; which to me is tough like old boots. You should try some nice Dutch or Danish bacon fried the English way
American bacon is rank! Like eating dragonglass... I suspect.
I have a love/hate relationship with bacon. Hate when the fat is like knicker elastic. If it is fatty I do like it when it is overcooked and the fat goes crumbly. I also hate tough bacon.
Also, it goes straight through me
I love my bacon but is it just me that is reading an anti Jew/anti Muslim undertone to alchemysticals posts?
Maybe it's just me but I'm thinking they are written as maximum wind up for any Jews/Muslims that may come across this thread?
Thick cut rind on middle bacon from a proper butcher, fried then onto a triple layer butty comprising 2 slices of white buttered bread with a piece of fried bread (made in the bacon fat) as the middle layer with HP sauce.
Whilst this subject matter could easily veer off course and transcend into an anti-Semitic, anti-vegetarian, anti-vegan or anti-Islamic thread, post #9 clearly states the OP's position.
If it does go off topic, it will be dealt with.
PC. Gone. Mad.
ANTIFA have broken into AVF.
Explain this please
Salt levels do vary, at least in the UK, so certainly get some thats too salty but others that are much more balanced.
That said, I am not a bacon fan and think there are many better things you can do with pig than make bacon. I'm not keen on other unadulterated cured pig either (eg jamón ibérico).
I can eat it, if its not too salty, hasnt been overcooked and either the fat has been removed and/or cooked properly but too many bacon sarnies or burgers with bacon you end up fighting rubbery fat and so effort -v- reward just doesnt stack up for me.... give me a sausage sandwich over bacon any time
Fear of admitting to liking bacon in public as not to offend
Wrong way round you neanderthal!
You either like bacon or you're wrong..
Don't judge me, just try it!
Question is, what to have with a sausage and bacon sandwich?
Reminds me off this joke...
A Catholic priest, Peter Smit and a rabbi are seated next to one another on a plane. During the flight, the priest says, "Tell me, rabbi, is it still a requirement of the Jewishfaith that you do not eat pork?" "That is the case, yes," says the rabbi. "But tell me, did you ever get tempted - did it ever appeal so much that you couldn't resist and decided to see what, say, bacon tasted like?" the priest goes on. "Yes, father, there was one occasion when, as a young man, the smell of bacon became too much of a temptation and I tasted it," the rabbi admits. "And how did you find it?" asks the priest. "Well, says the rabbi, "Since we are both men of God and being honest with one another, I must confess it was excellent. I enjoyed it very much. But I never ate it ever again." The priest sits back, looking smug. Later during the flight, the rabbi says to the priest, "Tell me, father - is it still a requirement of your own faith that you do not have sexual intercourse?" "Why yes," says the priest, "That is indeed true." "But were you ever tempted, even once, to see what sexual intercourse is like?" the rabbi continues. "Well, as you were so honest with me, I must confess that indeed, once, when I was a young man, I did have sexual intercourse with a woman," the priest tells him. "Beats the hell out of a bacon sandwich, doesn't it?" says the rabbi.
Worked with a traditional Sikh guy who was veggie but loved the smell of bacon frying in the morning, he would sit in the cafe just to imbibe the intoxicating vapours as he put it.
Just the one slice of bacon, gotta leave room for lunch
Londoners call it red sauce, just as they call HP brown sauce. Well they used to.
Crusty or fatty?
Personally I cannot eat any type of slimy, soggy, slippery food, so crunchy for me
I like my Bacon nicely crispy otherwise the fat comes off...normally grilled smoke medallion's too...
White buttered bread/bun with some freshly ground black pepper...
if I do have a fried egg with it, then I cook it in very hot vegetable oil so the base gets crispy and the yolk soft...
