Re: Bacon butties in ZH

reasons to take a suitcase for two nights in London next week? Check For me it's that plus king-size quilt covers from John Lewis. And don't get SWMBO onto what she wants in the US a week later.

I do know that a place was doing cuts like our bacon in Ober/UnterenGstringen a few years ago - get to know your butcher and you might be surprised.

Re: Bacon butties in ZH

Yup, you're right LR. Someone I know here in MUC went to his local butcher, waved a piece of bacon under his nose and said "Oi, Mush! I want some of this!" (or words to that effect) and the butcher knew exactly what was required (where to cut from and so on), and he now gets proper bacon. The git.

if you order from this "over the rainbow" how do they deliver and how long do deliveries usually take ( I'm having visions of week old sausages in the post )
we orderd some bacon and other meat from there and when it arrived at our house it was defrosted so we had to throw it away!

Re: Bacon butties in ZH

So once you've got the bacon which bread do you use?

The ideal bacon buttie needs soft, chemically treated white ready sliced bread ala warbutons.

The sliced bread here is already stale and only fit for the toaster.

Re: Bacon butties in ZH

Given the success of this thread I'm considering throwing a bacon sarny party when I finally arrive in town permanently. BYOB (bring your own bacon), obviously.

Re: Bacon butties in ZH

we had bacon butties for breakfast this morning with real bacon . Jelmoli food hall is now selling real Scottish bacon at the butcher counter, it cost around CHF10 for 9 slices & was worth every penny.

Re: Bacon butties in ZH

Would love to nip out to a greasy spoon here in ZH and order some bacon butties. A forlorn hope I know.

Re: Bacon butties in ZH

I just looked up what a bacon butty is. Apparently it is a sandwich with baked bacon. So what's the problem ? I just ask because I don't know this delicacy.

Re: Bacon butties in ZH

Aha yet another 7 year old thread reawakened by Sobeit.

I've never heard if anyone actually baking bacon but otherwise that's essentially it. Thick slices of cooked bacon ( not the stuff they call bacon in France or Belgium) grilled or fried and put between two slices of buttered bread. ( with or without ketchup or brown sauce).
