…Your bacon sandwich isn’t perfect?

Want to know a tasty math formula?

    Bacon SandwichN = C + {fb (cm) . fb (tc)} + fb (Ts) + fc . ta

    Where N=force in Newtons required to break the cooked bacon, fb=function of the bacon type, fc=function of the condiment/filling effect, Ts=serving temperature, tc=cooking time, ta=time or duration of application of condiment/filling, cm=cooking method, C=Newtons required to break uncooked bacon.


According to scientists at the Leeds University, if you can follow the above formula, you will have created the perfect bacon sandwich.

How do they know? They spent 1,000 hours testing 700 variations on the traditional bacon sandwich to discover that

    Two or three back bacon rashers should be cooked under a preheated oven grill for seven minutes at about 240C (475F).
    The bacon should then be placed between two slices of farmhouse bread, 1cm to 2cm thick.

Who knew science could be so delicious?
