Honey bacon, fig and goats cheese grilled sandwich

HBFG - Sandwich


4 smoked rashers of bacon cut in halves

1 tablespoon of honey

1 teaspoon of thyme

3 knobs of butter

2 slices of bakers’ bread

½ log of fresh goats cheese cut into pieces

1 jar of fig marmalade*

2 figs (either fresh or packet)

* My personal favourite fig marmalade is by Bonne Maman- you can buy it in any local supermarket

  1. Drizzle one tablespoon of honey in the fry pan over a high heat before cooking the halved bacon rashers
  2. Spread the fig marmalade generously onto one slice of bread
  3. Cut the fresh figs into thin slices and arrange them on top of the fig marmalade
  4. Assemble the sliced goats cheese on top of the figs and marmalade before laying the cooked bacon on top
  5. Add 1 knob of butter with thyme into the fry pan over a medium heat
  6. When the thyme butter is beginning to melt place your sandwich onto the pan
  7. Find something heavy to balance on top of the sandwich to push it into the fry pan
  8. After 2 minutes flip the sandwich over, add another knob of thyme butter before pressing the sandwich down onto the pan again
  9. Take the sandwich off the pan, serve hot and bon appetit!
