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:
May the skinniest butty win ;-)!
