The Infamous French Bacon Sandwich

I have been getting a few emails regarding the French Bacon Sandwich that I posted on my about page.  It is really tasty.  I first heard about the French Bacon Sandwich when I was in college.  My old roommate Nate and I were watching the South Park DVDs and the intro for Season 2.  The intro consisted of a fake cooking segment called Bakin Bacon with Macon.  In the cooking segment Trey Parker and Matt Stone teach the finer points of the French Bacon Sandwich.  It can be a little hard to watch as they feed bacon to a pig named macon.  So if you are a PETA fan or don’t like animal cruelty you may want to skip the link.  You can watch it here.

French Bacon Sandwich

It might be the simplest and greatest sandwich ever.

The French Bacon Sandwich (As seen in South Park Complete Season 2 boxed set)

  • 1 pound of bacon
  • 8 slices of white wonder bread
  • 1 bottle of French dressing

The first step is to cook the bacon.  Unlike the cooking segment I like to bake my bacon in the oven.  It comes out looking nicer.  Set your oven to 400.  Then you need a sheet pan lined with aluminum.  Then put a baking rack over the foil.

Then put the bacon in strips on the rack.  If you have a rack with grates you can push the bacon between the grates for a nice rippled look or else you can lay it flat.  Put in the oven for 20-30 minutes or until it is the desired crispyness.

I left mine in for 25 minutes.  Then remove and let it cool.

Meanwhile grab your white bread and lay it out.  Layer with the bacon and drizzle it liberally with french dressing.

Doesn't that look amazing!!!

Add the top layer of the bread, cut and serve.

The French Bacon Sandwich - Quite spectacular looking, if you could only taste it.

That is it.  I know what you are thinking, yep it is solid bacon.  Who wouldn’t love that.

    It was the best sandwich I have ever eaten. It was perfect. Tim, I can not think of anything that Trey and Matt can not do. They are gods among men.

  2. IT looks good except for the French dressing. Try Miracle whip instead. Even better is to drizzle bacon grease on the bacon inside of your sandwich!! Yum Yum!!

    I think arugula would be a great addition to the sandwich. Arugula is a great pairing with bacon and helps rid the body of bacon fat – now that is a smart combo!
