Bacon Buttie

Breakfast / Recipes

If you have ever had the pleasure of going to the Dunedin Farmer’s Market you will understand what I mean when I say that the Bacon Buttie Man makes the best bacon butties in the whole world!ย It is simple food done well, and today I tried to replicate the delicious buttie. I think I was pretty darn close ๐Ÿ™‚

Makes 4 butties (serves 4, or 2 if you are super hungry)


  • 8 slices of thick white toast bread – the bread must be fresh
  • 100g streaky bacon, chop each piece into 3 or 4 bits – beehive sweet and smokey streaky bacon is delicious
  • half an onion, diced
  • tomato relish, anathoth farm tomato relish is my favourite
  • gherkin relish, I used the Tararua creamy gherkin dip found in the fridge section of the super market
  • dijon mustard
  • butter
  • 2 tbsp oil


  • Heat a pan to medium heat. Add 1 tbsp of oil to the pan and fry the onion until cooked and translucent.
  • Remove the onion from the pan. Don’t wash the pan. Heat it to medium heat again. Add 1 tbsp of oil then add the bacon. Cook bacon for around 5 to 10 minutes / until it starts to crisp up.
  • While cooking the bacon, butter the bread. Spread the gherkin relish generously on one piece of the bread. On another piece of bread spread the tomato relish.
  • Spread a little bit of mustard on top also.
  • Place onion and bacon on top of one slice of bread, and then top with another piece of bread. ย Repeat these last two steps for all of the pieces of bread.
  • Enjoy!
