Tomato ketchup?

Had lunch at a relatives house today. They gave us bacon sandwiches, but only supplied brown sauce (travesty!). When I politely asked if there was any tomato ketchup, I just got a blank look followed by "well, I suppose we might have some tomato puree in the back of the cupboard".

AIBU to think that bacon sandwiches need tomato ketchup and it's just wrong to not even offer any?

Go non-contact, no ketchup is just plain wrong!

What's the point of having a bacon sandwich if you're going to drown it in horrid sugary goop?

Rummikub Sun 24-Aug-14 14:24:55

Oh no brown sauce all the way!

Ok, I'll say it. it's a travesty to ruin good bacon with any sort of highly processed, sugary, vinegary sauce....IMO

I only like ketchup on sausage sandwiches. I prefer bacon with no sauce so I just get all that lovely bacony flavour.

I could murder a bacon sandwich right now. grin

Nothing needs tomato ketchup-it's revolting1

A considerate host would offer BS for Northerners and ketchup for Southerners. Am hoping that 4 day old DS will favour ketchup like me rather than BS like his dad.

Ketchup has proven health benefits too

YABU, Mayonnaise all the way

Barbecue if anything, but I accept that's probably a bit perverse (and a hangover from pregnancy cravings) Can't stand tomato sauce on anything other than chips or burgers personally!

I don't eat bacon but if I did - it would have to be with ketchup. Tomato puree??? What are they thinking?

bearfrills Sun 24-Aug-14 14:27:49

I'm northern and I think BS tastes rank.

RussTDaviesBear Sun 24-Aug-14 14:28:12

YABU. No ketchup or brown sauce - white bread, butter and crispy bacon ONLY!

YAB particularly U to start talking about bacon sandwiches when I don't have any bacon in the house...

SchroSawMargeryDaw Sun 24-Aug-14 14:28:29

Yuck! Has to be mayonaise or at a push, brown sauce. Ketchup is vile.

OwlCapone Sun 24-Aug-14 14:29:04

YABU. Ketchup is rank.
So is brown sauce.

I'm normally a mayonnaise woman but on bacon sandwiches? That's a step too far for me. We really need to now what kind of bread it was, was the bacon very hot with buttered white bread or cold with brown.

Drip-feeding I'm sure, OP.

MrsWinnibago Sun 24-Aug-14 14:30:32

YABU. It taints the bacon. Same with beans on an English Breakfast. Wrong.

FortyFacedFuckers Sun 24-Aug-14 14:31:21

No it's got to be brown sauce for bacon sandwiches!

StillaChocoholic Sun 24-Aug-14 14:31:34

I'm northern and it has to be ketchup

Tomato sauce tastes foul and looks like congealing blood.

Mayonnaise on bacon, mustard on sausages.

iklboo Sun 24-Aug-14 14:32:35

Occasionally tomato ketchup on bacon butties. Never brown sauce (and I'm northern). Mayo if it's a bacon & mushroom sandwich.

Sausage butties? Usually piccalilli or tomato sauce.

Bacon, buttered white bread.. And sliced cherry tomatoes on the side

slithytove Sun 24-Aug-14 14:33:28

Otherwise, hp sauce.

Ketchup with sausage baps

I don't particularly like bacon, I'll eat it with bs if there's nothing else but wouldn't care if I never had it again. Dh thinks I'm a travesty of nature!

Dh and dc's are tommy k all the way, northerners here.
