British Bacon Rolls

So here’s the thing. The Brits get a lot of flack for ‘tasteless’ food. But after two years living there and nearly a decade in a relationship with an Englishman, I’m here to tell you that this is entirely a falsehood. From curries to roast dinners, British cuisine is some of the best in the world.

Case in point: can you imagine anything more decadent and tasty than melty sharp cheddar cheese wrapped in crispy bacon?

I first experienced British bacon rolls, made with what the Brits term as “streaky” bacon (us Americans just call it bacon) and super sharp cheddar, at the first Christmas I spent at James’s parents house.

James’s step-mum pulled out a fancy Marks & Spencer package (trust me, anything from M&S is super posh) and proceeded to bake them off. The smell alone was enough to have me salivating while I sat on the couch, but biting into a hot Bacon Roll for the first time was kinda life changing.

British Bacon Rolls are a perfectly indulgent way to send off 2012. Before we plan our new work out routines and healthy eating plans, one last hurrah to the beauty of the holiday season.

Whether you serve them as a party hors d’oeuvre or just for the family as a quiet ringing in for the new year, I think you’re going to love every British bite.

Happy New Year, from our house to yours!
