3 rashers Heston from Waitrose Syrup & Stout Streaky Bacon
1 tbsp oil
1 tbsp French's Mustard
1 tbsp Heinz Tomato Ketchup
1 tbsp mayonnaise
10g salted butter, for spreading

Method

1. Preheat the grill.

2. Place the bacon rashers on a piece of baking parchment, and put another piece of baking parchment on top.

3. Using a rolling pin, roll the bacon until thin. Remove the top sheet of baking parchment and discard. Cut the rashers in half.

4. Heat the oil in a frying pan, then fry the rashers until cooked through and crisp, turning frequently. Remove two of the rashers and set aside; let the remaining rasher fry, turning frequently, until extremely crisp and caramelised.

5. Meanwhile, toast one of the slices of bread.  

6. Mix together the mustard, ketchup and mayonnaise in a bowl.

To assemble:
1. Spread the butter on the toasted bread, add the bacon rashers and top with the untoasted bread.  

2. Serve the sauce in a bowl for dipping. Alternatively, spread the sauce on one of the slices of bread.
