A good bacon butty

For those of you unfamiliar with the term ‘butty’ the OED defines it as follows:

butty (also buttie) noun (pl. butties) informal,chiefly N. English a filled or open sandwich:a bacon butty. – ORIGIN mid 19th cent.:from BUTTER+-Y.

Or perhaps think about Ken Dodd for a moment and the jam butty mines – or maybe don’t. Also,of course,there are chip butties and cheese butties. In essence any kind of sandwich can be called a butty although I’m not sure you’d apply the term to something filled with chicken and avocado or crayfish and rocket or cucumber…..now there’s a thought a cucumber butty – a new slant on afternoon tea.

Anyway back on the bacon butty trail – this morning I had a great example rustled up for breakfast from some beer cured back bacon,some sautéed portobello mushrooms,a good dollop of ketchup (my favourite Stokes Real Ketchup –yum) and 2 slices of properly chewy wholemeal

It was great.

 

But then I’m probably biased as I made it.
