Matthew Pinsent's Bacon-buster sarnie
Bread contains masses of carbohydrate energy and hardly any fat. Choose your favourite roll wholemeal is better but ciabatta and panini toast so well on the griddle. Turkey rashers are a great alternative to bacon as they are lower in fat.
Preparation: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 8 minutes
Serves: 1

  • 1 half ciabatta loaf or 1 panini roll or 1 soft wholemeal sub roll, split in half

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 beefsteak tomato, thickly sliced

  • 2 Portabello mushrooms, thickly sliced

  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley, plus extra to garnish

  • 3 unsmoked turkey rashers

  • 2 tablespoons tomato ketchup (optional)

  • salt and freshly ground black pepper

The Recipe

  • Brush the ciabatta, panini or wholemeal roll with a little of the oil.

  • Toss together the remaining oil, tomato and mushroom slices and parsley and season well with salt and pepper.

  • Heat a large griddle pan until hot and smoking and place the bread, crust-side down, on the griddle. Press down well with a fish slice or the base of another pan and hold down for 2 -3 minutes until toasted and charred with lines. Remove the wrap in a clean cloth to keep warm.

  • Tip the vegetables on to one side of the griddle. Arrange the turkey rashers on the other side of the griddle and cook both for 2 -3 minutes or until the rashers are golden, turning them over once during cooking.

  • Pile the vegetables on to the bottom half of the bread, top with the turkey rashers and spoon over the tomato ketchup, if using. Scatter over the remaining parsley. Sandwich with the other half of the bread, press down well and eat immediately!
