This delicious melt can be varied to suit what you fancy. You can use a different jam, from fig to strawberry, or you could add freshly sliced strawberries or pears instead – it’s up to you.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
3 slices smoked streaky bacon
1 tablespoon butter, at room temperature
2 slices white farmhouse bread or bloomer
1 tablespoon raspberry jam
60g brie, sliced

Method

  1. Cook the bacon either in a frying pan or under the grill until crispy. Set aside.
  2. Butter one side of both slices of bread and lay them butter-side down. Spread the jam over one of the unbuttered sides of bread, then top with the Brie and bacon. Close the sandwich with the other slice of bread, with the buttered side facing out.
  3. Heat a heavy-based frying pan over a medium-high heat and lay the sandwich in the pan. Press down with a spatula and cook for 3 minutes, then flip the sandwich over and cook for a further 2–3 minutes or until golden on the outside and the brie is melted and oozing in the middle. Alternatively, cook the sandwich in a toasted sandwich maker or panini press.

Best bread:

  • white farmhouse or bloomer
