Russ and I stopped at a tiny pub in the English countryside for lunch. The menu was limited and the chef under stress as a full coach had just arrived. We were told all we could have were sandwiches-these were unbelievable. They were made with thickly sliced artisan bread and came with a salad of bitter leaves and fries on the side. We really didn’t need the fries! Australians and the English usually butter their bread but it’s up to you.
- 4 slices bacon, halved
- 8 slices bread (buttered is optional)
- butter (optional)
- 100 g brie cheese, sliced thin
- Heat a pan over medium heat, cook bacon to your liking.
- Meanwhile butter bread if you wish; spread one side with a little chutney.
- Divide hot bacon between chutnied bread slices, top with cheese, bread and cut to serve.
- Eat at once.
- Good served with a green salad on the side.
I first had one of these near Grasmere, UK. It was fantastic, and I ended up ordering similar sandwiches throughout my stay. Just about to make one right now -- so easy, so delicious! (Canadian bacon is a good sub for British "bacon".)
What a great lunch this made, I made just the one for me and as I'm not a big fan of chutney I omitted, used the ends from a wholegrain wholemeal loaf which I toasted. MMMMMM crispy hot bacon and soft creamy brie slowly melting as you eat oh so good and oh so filling - didn't need the salad. Thank you Jan.
I have made these twice now. The first time I made as per recipe using turkish bread cut through horizontally and toasted. The second time I did the same but added some avocado slices to the filling. Delicious. :) We didn't need the salad or the fries!! LOL. Thanks Jan for a keeper for us. Made for Aus/NZ swap March 2009
