There are many opinions on how to make a bacon butty. You can vary it as you please. Best bacon is Canadian back bacon (probably can't get it in the US) or a lovely British bacon if you can get it. Americans can use a slice of Canadian Bacon (ironically this is not Canadian).
Traditionally, Brits will use a good white bread. You may prefer a crusty roll or other bread. Instead of brown sauce you could substitute dijon mustard or chili sauce.
