          Brits’ best bacon butty

          Britons’ ideal bacon butty comprises
          three slices of smoked bacon on a white
          bread roll with brown sauce, according
          to IronmongeryDirect’s survey of 2014
          UK adults.
            44% of respondents said their
          sandwich would be complete with a
          squeeze of brown sauce compared to
          36% who preferred ketchup. 11% selected
          their sandwich without sauce, while 4%
          admitted to choosing BBQ sauce.
            A quarter of Brits (24%) like their
          bread toasted when constructing their
          perfect sandwich, while 43% butter their
          bread before filling their sandwich.
            What people call the bacon sandwich
          is also a matter of question divided by
          region. Those in the South commonly call
          their sandwich a bacon bap or roll, those
          in the midlands opt for cob, while those
          in the North West say barm. Scottish
          residents are also known to call their
          bacon butty a bridie, buttery or rowie,
          with the research revealing they prefer
          sliced white bread (53%) rather than a
          roll (48%).
