Roasted Balsamic Red Pepper, Bacon and Brie Sandwich

Pasta, roast chicken or sandwich

     Every time I ask for ideas of what to have for dinner, my husband replies with 3 options: pasta, roast chicken or sandwiches.  Now, I like sandwiches as much as the next person but when I ask for ideas, I want inspiration.  BUT there is only so much inspiration you can muster together when your partner’s brain is stuck on 3 food settings.  So I have to use my creative talents on the options given.

Case in point, this sandwich.  No humdrum ham and cheese for me.  Salty bacon (drool), creamy brie (double drool), and the sweetness of the roasted red pepper drizzled in balsamic vinegar (puddle of drool).  Put it in between two slices of your favorite bread 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 us, we ran out of ingredients forcing us to eat something else the next day.  Pathetic, I know but hey, have you seen this sandwich?  I mean…can you blame me?

 

 

Preheat oven to the highest temperature. Wash and clean red bell peppers. Place in the oven and let cook until skin is blistering. Make sure to turn it over so that all sides are equally blistered. When equally charred on all sides, place in a lidded container. Seal it and let steam until cool.
When cool enough to the touch, peel off the skin and remove seeds from inside.
Cut into strips about 1 in / 2 cm thick. Drizzle with 1-2 tsp of balsamic vinegar and season with salt and pepper.
Place sliced red pepper in a baguette along with thick slices of brie, crispy bacon, a drizzle of mayonnaise (optional) and a smear of Dijon mustard (optional).
