When we were in town the other day I saw this sandwich advertised on one of the little cafe windows.  I think it was an Italian one.  It sounded fabulous.  Cranberry, Bacon and Brie Panini.   What’s not to like about that!

That very day I bought a wedge of Brie at the cheese mongers in the Market.  I was already formulating a plan in my head.  I already had some nice dry cure streaky bacon in the fridge.   I like to buy dry cure bacon.  It’s not pumped full of water . . . nice.

I used a spicy cranberry chutney, because I rather like that.   But regular cranberry sauce would be delicious as well I think.    I also added some greenery . . . mustard cress, for colour and for a bit of a peppery bite.

Some nice fresh Panini rolls and Bob’s your Uncle!   These went down a real treat.   They were rich and smokey and sweet and salty . . . deliciously scrummy.

Even the Toddster who is basically a “cheddar” man loved them.   (seriously the man thinks that only cheese worth eating is cheddar.  He complained when we were in France a few years ago and we couldn’t get any.  Any cheese of the world you could imagine . . . but no cheddar.  If it’s not cheddar it’s not cheese as far as he’s concerned!)

Cut your panini buns in half horizontally.    Spread the bottom half of each with 2 TBS of the cranberry sauce.  Top with 2 slices of Brie on each some cress and 3 slices of bacon.  Place the panini bun tops on each.   Butter lightly on the outsides and then toast in a panini press, or in a hot skillet just until golden and the cheese has begun to melt.  Serve hot and cut in half on the diagonal.
