Blue Cheese Tartine

"A tartine is an open-faced sandwich in French. This one's even better than average as the bread is toasted and crunchy. I often crave blue cheese, but really don't need a lot to satisfy that craving - this is the perfect blue cheese snack. Recipe adapted from 'Harvest to Heat'."

Ready In:




  • Brush both sides of the bread lightly with olive oil. (It's imperative that you brush the bread with olive oil, rather than just drizzle or glob the oil on the bread. This ensures an enticingly crisp surface rather than a sad, soggy one.) Place the bread on a baking sheet and broil until golden on one side, about 2 minutes. Turn bread over and repeat on second side. Sprinkle with the cheese and broil until slightly melted, about 1 minute.
  • Arrange the clue cheese tartines on a serving platter. Place 2 warm slices of bacon over each toast and then drizzle with the honey and grind some fresh pepper over the top. Cut each tartine in half, if desired, and serve.

<style>body { background: url(""); background-repeat: repeat-y; }</style> OK, here goes. I live in Athens, Greece. I moved out here many, many years ago from Ottawa, Canada - so I am blessed in having two wonderful heritages! I suffer from compulsive obsessive behaviour with regard to food and my psychiatrist thought it would be a good idea to find a 'society' where many have the same problem and try to find a cure. So far, I've copied a couple of thousand recipes from this site and my psychiatrist has thrown the towel in and refuses to answer the phone when I call. What did I do wrong? Got 3 kids that keep me on the go - 10 and under at this point (2008) - I may not get round to updating this for a few years, so you'll have to do your own maths. I teach English full-time and Greek Cookery part-time. I would like to make the cooking part of it full-time and the English Grammar part of it part-time. That's all for now.
