Brie and Bacon Sandwiches

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by JustJanS

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.

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".)
