Bacon sandwich

Bacon sandwich
Two pieces of brown bread, butter and a larger-than-typical amount of bacon, assembled to form a bacon sandwich.

A bacon sandwich (also known in the United Kingdom as a bacon sarnie, bacon butty/buttie, bacon bap, bacon barm or bacon cob; and as a bacon sanger or piece 'n bacon in Scotland) is a form of sandwich made from cooked bacon between two slices of bread, usually buttered. Often some form of sauce, such as tomato ketchup or brown sauce, is included. The BLT is a popular variant of the bacon sandwich having the additional ingredients of lettuce and tomato.

Bacon sandwiches are an all-day favourite throughout the United Kingdom. Rarely found on the menus of high class restaurants, they are often served in greasy spoons, and are anecdotally recommended as a hangover cure.

Australian hamburger shops sell a bacon sandwich, which is made much like a traditional Australian hamburger with fried bacon, fried onions, lettuce, tomato, tinned beetroot and barbecue sauce or tomato sauce. In some establishments the sandwich will be constructed on slices of bread, which are toasted on only one side, while other establishments serve it on the same roll as is used for hamburgers. In Toronto, Canada, peameal bacon served on a kaiser roll is a popular version of the sandwich.
