I always order the bacon and brie sandwich

     No humdrum ham and cheese sandwich for me.  I like my sandwiches with salty bacon, creamy brie, and the sweetness of the roasted red pepper drizzled in balsamic vinegar.  Put it in between two slices of your favorite bread or my personal preference, a baguette, and you’ve got it made.

I could eat this tasty sandwich for the rest of my life and I knew it was damn good when I wanted it for dinner after already eating it for lunch.  Luckily for me, I soon ran out of all the sandwich ingredients thus forcing me to make something different for lunch and dinner the next day.  Pathetic, I know but hey, have you seen this sandwich?  I mean…can you blame me?

As easy as you want it

As far as sandwich recipes go, this bacon and brie sandwich is fairly straightforward. Just fry up some bacon, slice up some cheese and add some roasted red pepper to it.  Now, if you don’t want to go through the steps of roasting, blistering, steaming, peeling and de-seeding a red bell pepper.  I understand.

For an easier solution, feel free to use jarred slices of red pepper. I usually find jars of red pepper slices in the Mediterranean section and have even found it in the Polish food aisle. The choice is yours on what to use but remember to not stress about it.  It is, after all, just a sandwich.
