I’ve always liked the traditional story of the origin of the Sandwich.The story of how the Earl of Sandwich dismissed the call for dinner and requested a piece of meat between two slices of bread, so he could remain gambling at the card table. That’s style.
For me the unrivalled king of the sani is the bacon sani. I defy anyone, anywhere to come up with something better. I’m prepared to accept the sausage sani comes close (brown sauce btw). I’m also prepared to accept the chip butty should be high on the list too. But the king of sani’s, hot or cold, is the bacon sani and I will not compromise on that point. It is non negotiable. And please don’t even mention second division embarrassment like the hamburger or the hot dog. And things like wraps and tack’s don’t even count as sani’s at all!
With the bacon sani, it’s tempting to add in things like tomato’, mushrooms, lettuce and the like. But then it wouldn’t be a bacon sani. It would become a bacon and tomato sani or a bacon and mushroom sani or even a BLT. The beauty of the bacon sani lays in it’s elegant simplicity and in it’s purity.
