Ever felt your sandwich missed that special something? Want some help making it everything it should be? Then step right in, good sir/ma'am! Penniwhistle is here to teach you how to make this delicious sandwich suitable for breakfast, lunch, dinner, high tea, elevenses, or any other meal you can happen to think of.
Step 1: Ingredients
For this most delectable of delights, you will need the following:
6 rashers of streaky bacon
2 medium sized tomatoes
1 large handful of lettuce
1/2 a red onion
1 clove of garlic
~100ml of sour cream
2 slices of crusty bread
I prefer streaky bacon to regular bacon because I find it cooks better. Most people I know cook their bacon on a low heat, stopping before it goes cripsy, but I like mine with a bit of brown to it. In my experience, streaky bacon goes cripsy better than regular rashers.
Step 2: First stop: the healthy stuff
Firstly, we'll be dealing with the vegetables [and fruit! Tomato is a fruit!] The reason is, we'll be rushing to finish at the end, and vegetables can be dealt with and left out ready, because you don't have to worry about them getting cold.
Firstly, shred your lettuce and slice your tomatoes. This is important - cutting lettuce removes a lot of the crunch from it I find, whereas shredding actually helps it. I like a lot of tomato, and not so much lettuce, so I took one decent-sized handful of the green, and sliced two tomatoes. Make sure you cut them into slices, not wedges, or your sandwich won't stay together when you eat it.
