Bidvest 3663, “the leading food service wholesale distributor”, as their website introduces them, has launches last week a very interesting challenge for a food lover and blogger like me: the best bacon butty!
I eagerly and enthusiastically subscribed to the challenge as, I must confess, I am a sucker for bacon, must have a lot to do with being raised in Romania and all those cold winter months and hearty food my mum used to cook for us!
But I decided to take the humble(yet yum!) bacon butty and lift it to the professional and dignified level of a healthy light lunch!
Here is what I used as ingredients:
- lean bacon medallions
- crispy lettuce
- basil infused olive oil (two tablespoons, for flavour, mainly)
- two organic eggs
- cranberry sauce
- Honey and slept skinny(100 calories only per portion)
Assembling my healthy bacon butty was easy and fun: I scrambled the egg, fried two bacon medallions and slightly toasted my skinny. I spread a thin layer of cranberry sauce on the top part of my skinny and used lettuce leaves and pomegranate seeds for presentation and decor.
Here is my open topped butty:
And here it is, ready to be…consumed :-). All in the name of research for the blog, of course, of course! It was yummy, crispy and light and at 250 calories per butty, a very light and tasty lunch!
If we win the challenge and the excellent quality food hamper Bidvest 3663 has to offer as a prize for the winner, you are all invited for lunch on Christmas day!
May the skinniest butty win ;-)!
That looks delicious. I would never had added those ingredients together but definitely looks yummy
That looks and sounds delicious 🙂 I have to admit though, I’d have to leave out the lettuce and add fried mushrooms and tomato ketchup! Not so healthy but totally yummy!
I was a veggie for 14 years and still don’t like bacon. My family do though and would love this
This looks absolutely amazing, so easy to make too x
Wow this looks really delicious and pretty healthy too – good luck with the competition!
I’m not a bacon eater so would substitute it for turkey rashers 🙂 Looks delish!
This looks yummy! Bacon is one of my favourite foods. Good luck with the competition!
Now i am hungry!!
bacon is actually the only meat I ever eat! yummy 🙂
Can’t beat a bacon butty – healthy version or otherwise!
