Brie & Bacon Brown Bread Melt

The humble bacon sandwich has been reborn!

Just feast your eyes on this baby, baby.

Brie bacon honey melt-1

Crunchy brown, wholesome bread.

Rivers of rich, molten French cheese.

A heart of salty, crispy bacon.

What’s that drizzling out from the middle? Oh, that’s not bacon fat, oh no sir. That, my friend, is honey.

A sweet little kiss to the bacon’s saltiness and creaminess of the cheese.

To serve one (double as needed) you’ll need;

Two hand cut slices of proper brown bread

Four slices of brie

Four slices of streaky bacon

Drizzle of honey

One mug of tea, one cosy blanket and one film (I suggest this one, it’s brilliant!)

Make it:

Start by frying your bacon, and slicing everything else up.

Cover both slices of bread with cheese.

Top with the cooked bacon.

Drizzle in honey.

Grab the pan you cooked the bacon in and get rid of most of the fat left over, keeping a little bit in the bottom.

Gently sandwich together your… sandwich, and place into the pan.

Top with something flat and a bit heavy, like a baking tray.

Cook on a medium heat for about 2-3mins, until you see the cheese start to melt.

Very carefully flip it over, using a spatula and cook for another couple of mins. Once the cheese starts pouring out of the sides, you’re golden.

Save washing up and serve on the chopping board you used earlier.

Snuggle down, dim the lights, unbutton your trousers and tuck in.

Sometimes the simplest things are the ones that really take your breath away.

Just don’t eat these too often, or it’ll be the stairs taking your breath away!

    I watched the movie in question to see if it would be suitable for a very sensitive ten year old I know. I am sure it is Pixar’s sole aim to reduce adults to tears with every single movie they release, that is certainly the effect this brilliant movie had on me. I loved it, but will try to hold the 10 year old for a while. I will, however, make us both the sandwich at the earliest opportunity, it looks delish.

  • The looks so good! Yummmy♥ I do agree with you… It’s the simple things that really that are really breathtaking ♥

  • that looks SO bomb!! i’ve never tried it with honey though, great idea!

  • This looks soo good. Your recipes are always the best.


  • I’m loving all the recipes you’re posting lately. I just got back from the Good Food Show where I bought a stack of cheese (because: bargain!) so thanks for giving me an idea as to what to do with it all!

      Maybe you could slice some zucchini (courgettes) really thin and season and fry them so they’re crispy and salty? I imagine this would be great with other veggies too like caramelized onions…

  • Girl, you’re killing me. This looks insanely good, and I’ve just had the most boring dinner ever. Considering running to the supermarket to get these ingredients and having second dinner…

  • Niamh Axe

    This. Looks. Amazing. I wasn’t hungry before – now I’m craving this baby !!! Genius !

  • I’m a pescetarian, so what do you think I would do about this recipe? (Strange, but seems necessary) substitute the bacon with nutella! There is no other vego substitute is there? (Okay, maybe vego bacon, but anyway…)
