  • In a small bowl, blend the butter with the sherry. Spread it on the baguette bottoms. Top each with 2 slices of bacon, close the sandwiches and serve.

Notes

Back bacon includes a portion of both the loin and the belly. It’s available from British butchers and amazon.com, or try a combination of Canadian bacon and thick-cut bacon.
