Brie and Bacon Sandwiches

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 5 mins

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.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 slice bacon, halved
  • 8 slice bread (buttered is optional)
  • butter (optional)
  • chutney
  • 100 g brie cheese, sliced thin


  1. Heat a pan over medium heat, cook bacon to your liking.
  2. Meanwhile butter bread if you wish; spread one side with a little chutney.
  3. Divide hot bacon between chutnied bread slices, top with cheese, bread and cut to serve.
  4. Eat at once.
  5. 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
