Bacon Apple & Brie Swammich

I know I know it has been like 20000 days since I last posted…

BUT, and I don’t really want to point fingers here but… someone else hasn’t posted in like 6000000 days… so if any flogging is going to happen it will be HIS patootie that get’s it NOT mine. I have a plethora of excuses. But only one way to make it up to you…

Bacon.

This is one of my all time favorite sandwiches of awesome to make. The only problem is that once I start making them, I don’t stop. It takes an amazing amount of will power to just say no. Or ok I’ll stop at 13…

Bacon Apple & Brie Swammich

The Apple Bacon and Brie Swammich. Oh HOLY HELL now I want one for dinner…

And yes, I know what you are thinking – Apple on a sandwich???

Effin YEA!

Start out with some really good, nutty bread. My favorite for this is a whole grain bakery bread with flax and sesame seeds and oats and M&M’s and poppy seeds and sunflower seeds…

Just checking to see if you are paying attention…

Ok – now the hard part…

Cook up some delicious thick cut fresh smoked bacon and try not to eat it all before you assemble the swammich…

Thinly slice up a tart apple. Granny Smiths are perfect, and my favorite.

Slice up that yummy brie.

Heat up your grill pan / panini pan / press / etc.

Spread a very thin layer of butter on one side of each slice of bread…

Spread some stone ground mustard on the other side of one slice and top with a few (about 17) slices of brie. Then top with the bacon slices. Use as many as your taste buds or your cholesterol will allow. (Um… 47 seems about right. NO! 48…) And then add the apple slices.

On the other slice of bread, add some more mustard if you like… and butter side UP finish the sandwich.

Lay that sandwich of cheesey bacony goodness on the hot grill / paninininini pan (Cheese side down) and press. Oh yea momma – hear that sizzle?

This is almost NSW!

When the cheese begins to melt and squish out of the swammich, take it off the pan and eat before anyone else gets home.

Ah yes… you can thank me now, and curse me later when you suffer from addiction.

    Very much like a favorite sandwich at a local place called Toast that I’ve mimicked at home. There’s does not have bacon…and now wondering WHY NOT? It does have a wonderful cranberry/mayo aoili…so now want to try again with bacon. Everything is better with bacon, right?.
