The ultimately healthy Christmas bacon butty

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)

Bacon butty ingredientsAssembling 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:

Healthy bacon buttyIf 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

  2. 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’m not a bacon eater so would substitute it for turkey rashers 🙂 Looks delish!
