Brown sauce tops bacon butty poll

Bacon ButtyResearch carried out by Direct Line for Business (DL4B) reveals that brown sauce is the nation’s favourite bacon butty accompaniment, with tomato ketchup a close-run second. The ultimate combination of ingredients for the van drivers’ perfect staple breakfast is white sliced bread (not toasted), smoked bacon and brown sauce.

The results show a clear East-West divide when it comes to ketchup or brown sauce in a butty; see full results below. Those in the East of England and the Welsh prefer ketchup, while those in the West go for a brown sauce, such as HP or Daddies. Only 21 per cent of people like their bread warmed or toasted and the same number prefer a white bap. Six per cent voted for brown bread while other options included stotties, sourdough, tiger bread and even Belgian waffles.

While Brits generally prefer their butties unadorned with anything but bacon and sauce, when they do add additional ingredients eggs are the clear winner, taking 31 per cent of the vote. Mushrooms and cheese registered 17 and 14 per cent respectively and one respondent even suggested lightly fried banana and avocado (obviously a MINI convertible driver, ed).

“The nation has spoken and declared their preferred bacon butty recipe,” said Jazz Gakhal, head of DL4B. “The humble butty inspires passion and debate, and there are those that will always claim bacon needs ketchup, but brown sauce is the collective favourite. Bacon butties have been the staple British breakfast for years, helping fuel the nation as they head to work or wind down on the weekend.”
