Try a Bacon Sarnie With a Twist: The Staffy Sandwich

It’s Bacon Connoisseur’s Week, so it goes without saying we needed to get involved.  As you know, we love all foods local, so we thought this was the perfect opportunity to add some local flavour and colour to our food.  The result:  ‘The Staffy’ Sandwich – a twist on a traditional bacon sarnie using ingredients from some of our favourite local suppliers, including our own locally cured, free range bacon.

So what’s in it?  The key ingredients of bacon, bread and of course, lashings of sauce that make up ‘The Staffy’ Sandwich, are all locally sourced, prepped and cooked. Hindley’s bread ( is a speciality Staffordshire spelt and Cottage Delight’s Bacon Butty Sauce ( is a secret recipe that packs punch, and of course the bacon is our own free-range, locally cured.

We opted to top our ‘Staffy’ with an array of tomatoes, roasted pimento peppers, spinach leaves and ripe avocado, although of course you can always add your own choice of locally grown seasonal salad. The combination of refreshing superfoods and a drizzle of the Bacon Butty Sauce providing the heat that our British weather is often lacking, puts a slight twist on our culinary favourite.

In the build up to Bacon Connoisseurs Week, we’ve also been asking you to tell us about how you best like to eat your bacon sandwiches. The majority of feedback tells us that we are creatures of habit, with white bread and ketchup seeming to be the most popular choice. Hopefully we can encourage you to try something a bit different in your bacon sarnies. Our ‘Staffy’ Sandwich recipe is below so give it a try and let us know what you think via Facebook and Twitter! #howdoyoueatyours
