Hey there my Foodie Friends!! This morning I make no excuses. I woke up hungry and just felt like a little calories intake. The blueberry yoghurt was ignored, the fresh melon balls were moved to the back of the fridge, and the Actimel live bio health drink was, well, out of date! Haha! What jumped out at me was that beautiful back bacon and brie!! “Oh yes”, I thought “Yum Yum!”. Maybe a little cranberry as well…Cue the bacon, brie and cranberry sarnie!!
Now, it’s a simple sandwich, or sarnie. I wanted one. Jen wanted one. So we had one each. As said above, I make no excuses for eating it. Haha! And no excuses for the pretty basic photographs. In fact, I was in two minds about even posting this but it was so good I just wanted to share the love ❤.
As always the printable recipe is below and I will also talk you through it first. However, let’s not over-egg this (no pun intended), it is exactly what it says in the photograph. Toast, bacon, brie, and cranberry jam. Easy and just fantastic!!
1. Grill the bacon
That’s it! Grill it crisp. Three back rashers per sandwich. Once grilled keep warm in the oven,
2. Toast the bread
While the bacon is keeping warm, and the grill is still hot, toast the bread on one side. I used some freshly baked sourdough bread but use whatever you like. No Michelin Star here my friends. It’s just a bacon, brie and cranberry sarnie.
3. Add the bacon and cranberry jam
With the untoasted side facing up lay the bacon on one side of the sandwich and the cranberry jam on the other.
4. Add the brie and melt
Now the scummy bit. Lay the brie over the bacon and bang back under the grill. Just to make the brie soft and melt a little.
5. Make the sarnie and enjoy
Finally just put the sandwich together and enjoy. A bacon, brie and cranberry sarnie. Set’s you up for the day!!
That’s it my friends. Just a quick mouthwaterer for you to start the day. I’m now off to make a banoffee pie so what out for this bad boy next!!
- 6 rashers unsmoked back bacon
- 4 slices freshly thick sliced crusty bread
- 2 thick slices of brie cheese

Grill the bacon until crispy and place at the bottom of the over to keep warm.
Toast one side of all slices of the bread.

Make the sandwich and enjoy!!
