Sunday Brunch: Bacon Butty with House of Parliament Sauce
Editor's note: Each Saturday morning we bring you a Sunday Brunch recipe. Why on Saturday? So you have time to shop and prepare for tomorrow.
For those who were not raised with HP sauce, its flavor is savory and acidic, sweet and salty, and many of us consider it one of the world's great meat condiments. This classic sandwich couldn't be easier to make. The only ingredients are a pound of bacon and some crusty rolls, but the addition of HP makes the sum more than its parts.
This version of the sauce turns out a bit thinner than the original; feel free to up the cornstarch or let it cook down longer if you're looking for a more authentic texture. When choosing the bacon, I recommend a thicker cut variety.
