Honey-Cured Bacon, Stilton, and Chocolate Sandwich

My favorite brunch sandwich is a combination of honey-cured bacon, rich dark chocolate, and ripe tangy Stilton — mouthwatering and satisfying.

Ingredients

  • 4 thick slices of hand-cut, crusty white bread
  • Soft salted butter, for spreading
  • 2 ounces Venezuelan 72-percent dark chocolate
  • 6 slices honey-cured bacon
  • 3 ounces very ripe Stilton

Directions

Preheat the broiler until very hot. Place the bread under the broiler, and lightly toast on both sides, then spread with butter. Grate the chocolate on top and return to the broiler briefly to melt, taking care not to let the chocolate burn. Remove from heat.

Immediately place the bacon under the broiler until the edges are crisp and caramelized. Place on the chocolate and finish with a generous crumbling of Stilton. Lay the remaining buttered slice on top and press firmly. Enjoy!

Honey Shopping Tip

As an alternative to sugary, salty, processed foods, try shopping for fruits and vegetables that are in season.

Honey Cooking Tip

For a healthier alternative, substitute honey or molasses for sugar in baking recipes, and use a 3:1 blend of canola oil to olive oil instead of butter when cooking over the flame.
