Pastry genius Dominique Ansel gives the beloved English “bacon butty” a French accent by subbing slender baguette for the standard white toast. Flavor upgrade: Ansel replaces the traditional ketchup with sherry. Slideshow: More Bacon Sandwich Recipes

How to Make It

Step 1    

In a large cast-iron skillet, cook half of the bacon over moderately high heat, turning once, until browned and the edges are crisp, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer to paper towels. Repeat with the remaining bacon. 

Step 2    

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.


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.
