According to the style barometer in this week’s Sunday Times - BLT’s are going down! ”It’s all about the BELT - with the addition of a runny fried egg. Why did nobody think if this before?”
Well we did and its called the Whole Hog.

The Whole Hog was developed for Secret Garden Party 2011 and based on a sandwich I saw in the film Spanglish, with Adam Sandler. The film itself is instantly forgettable but what stuck in mind was the sandwich Adam Sandler’s character makes as a late night snack. A bit of resarch found that the Sandwich was actually the creation of Thomas Keller http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QXAJAyLdUXU, who worked with the film’s director to develop the kind of over the top salty creation a chef might make at home.
We substituted in some of our applewood smoked keen’s cheddar in place of the swiss cheese in the original and smoked back bacon in place of the streaky and The Whole Hog was born. It went down a storm at SGP and you can check one out for yourself every saturday at Brockley Market.
By the way we still love BLT’s as well, and classic bacon sarnies - with real butter and homemade brown sauce.
