back to article Vote now for the ULTIMATE BACON SARNIE

Right, you lovely people, the moment has arrived to settle once and for all that matter of most monumentous moment: just what constitutes the ultimate bacon sarnie. As you'll recall, the porcine polemic kicked off when we pitched German delicacy Bauernfrühstück against the sacred pork-based assemblage in one of our post-pub nosh …

The Guacamole Goulash

At first it looks like a disgusting pile of squid/mucus. But once you make out the bacon in there, it looks so tasty.

Oh, and my Hungarian friends (of which I have several) are screaming "Goulash is a soup!".

Re: The Guacamole Goulash

The addition of guacamole is an intriguing addition, however I would like to point out that whatever that green smear was...IT WAS NOT GUACAMOLE!! I mean really, was there even any avocado in that or was it just sour cream with some green food coloring in it?

Re: The Guacamole Goulash

Ah, Grasshopper. You must understand that there are many faces to guacamole. They range from compositions that look as if an avocado had been in a car wreck and taste only faintly of anything other than avocado, to pale, lime-green concoctions with the consistency of thick soup, with delicate hints of lime and cilantro and a pepper bite that will take off the top of your head.

Mmm, bacon in an English Muffin (awaits pedantic retort) is very classy.

Sandwiches with a massive amount of bacon put me right off. The bread/bacon balance is important, the bread is there to complement the bacon not merely package it.

At first I thought they were using a stottie, the only true bread for a bacon sarnie. When I realised it was a muffin it became clear they were failing as hard as everyone else on this list.

Bacon sandwiches are an art unto themselves. Any alleged winner will be based purely on chance because, like any other art form, perfection is in the eye of the beholder and therefore totally subjective.

It's all about "The Unholy Wholemeal Bap". All the others employ egg of some kind of sauce. Not for me thanks. I like to actually taste my bacon

Mine's the one without ketchup or brown sauce in it

If you can't taste the bacon as well as the HP then you haven't got the Maillard reaction going properly.

Re: precison engineer

Maybe... Then again, given that we're talking Hangover Control, I feel that the precision engineer is a wee bit too complicated and precise to perform under the circumstances encountered.

Whereas the Morning Eggstacy has ample track record of construction feasibility on an international level, under even more stringent conitions than the usual level of hangover.

The egg yolk hazard is a built-in warning feature that is a good indicator of ready-for-world+dog-ness, making it not only delightfully delicious, but also quite useful.

How very dare you vote for the precision engineer when you can't even eat an egg/bacon buttie without spillage! How precise is that?

Re: The Horn!

The Horn was one of the reasons I was more than happy to make the trek up the A90 from Edinburgh to Dundee to see customers. I always allowed an extra hour or so for the trip, just to be safe. I do remember thinking the sign used to look more like a leg of ham than a horn though, but that's perfect for this article. Not been there for over a decade though.

It's the baguette for me...

1. Crispy fresh white baguette cut to preferred length (actual length irrelevant to overall enjoyment).

2. Plenty of butter.

3. Bacon - Lots of, preferably non-supermarket. I prefer unsmoked, with a decent amount of semi-crisped rind.

4. Fried egg - optional (actually dependent on strength of hangover).

5. Brown sauce.

Re: Speaking as a vegetarian

I can't speak for them all, but it has nothing to do will the slaughter of animals for me. It's the texture and the taste. Both are something that the fake meats haven't mastered.

If it wasn't for meat eaters a lot of breeds wouldn't exist and a lot more hedgerows would be gone which in turn threatens a lot of other species - birds and insects. Eating meat is actually better for the environment than not eating meat. Just a shame I don't like it.

Re: Get a grip

Don't even need butter. However I think it is clear that in any eating situation condiments of all varieties are a matter for a man's personal conscience - the fundamentals of the thing are not affected by them so I'm voting on that basis.

Eggs, cheese and other nonsense is displaying gross disrespect for the fundamentals of this challenge.

the best way

get a few packs of bacon and various rolls sauces. No need to leave the kitchen or sit down, just fry it up and eat it straight there. if you do it in a chain fashion you can alternate plain, red sauce, brown sauce etc.

Re: Get a grip

Nobody asked about a 'Great British Breakfast'. This is all about the Bacon Sarnie - a culinary icon that stands apart from lowlier comestibles. Keep all your frippery. I want just bacon and bread. Nothing more, nothing less.
