Sandwiches, most of us eat them every day and they can end up being pretty dull for the most part.
Bit of bread, bit of meat, maybe some cheese, so far so boring.
So I thought I would share with you my absolute favourite sandwich ever:
Bacon, Stilton and Pesto with rocket.
This is a full on sandwich that is bursting with epic taste; the bacon is salty and crisp the Stilton is wonderfully sharp and gooey and the pesto just kicks everything up to another level whilst the fresh rocket leaves add some peppery freshness…. mmm I am salivating just thinking about it
To sate your own lunch time cravings you will need the following:
6″ crusty white baguette
2 or 3 rashers of good smokey bacon
about 50/60g of good quality stilton
a handful of fresh rocket leaves (mustard cress would also work well)
pesto to drizzle over the top (click here to see how to make your own delicious pesto)
a little unsalted butter
Split your baguette length-ways and spread a little of the unsalted butter on both halves of the roll.
Place your rocket leaves onto the roll
Cook your bacon until it is slightly crisp, pat off any excess fat and place onto the bed of rocket.
Crumble your stilton over the top of the bacon
Drizzle over a good amount of the pesto and enjoy.
If you want your stilton to be more melted then you can crumble some of it directly onto the bacon during the last 20/30 seconds or so of cooking.
