Hot Cross Bacon Butties Recipe

March 09, 2016




If you're looking for the ultimate Easter Sunday breakfast recipe, this is a delicious twist on the classic Hot Cross Bun.


The lovely team at Sainsbury's delivered a load of these Hot Cross Bacon Butties to my office this week and they went down an absolute treat! The fruity sweetness of the bun contrast again the smokey bacon is a real treat - I enjoyed it so much I had two!


To make them yourself simply follow the below:

Serves: 4
 | Prep time: 5 mins | Cook time: 25 mins

8 x Sainsbury’s Unsmoked Reduced Salt Back Bacon | 4 x TTD Hot Cross Buns

Preheat the oven to 200c/180c fan/gas mark 6. Place a rack in the lower third of the oven.

Line a baking sheet with foil (this makes cleanup easier) and place a wire rack on top. Lay the bacon on the rack in a single layer, not letting it overlap.

Transfer the bacon to the oven and bake until the bacon is deep golden- brown and crispy, about 18 to 20 minutes, turning over halfway.

Remove the bacon from the oven and use tongs to transfer it to a plate lined with paper towels to drain and finish crisping.

Slice the hot cross buns in half and toast. Serve each bun, with or without butter, with two strips of bacon inside.
