Our Daily Recipe, Boursin and Bacon on Rustic Bread

Boursin and Bacon on Rustic Bread

I’m not too sure, how this came about but we have been making it since the early 1980’s, our nephew Dan might remember as he was always saying “Go on Aunty Maureen, just one more Please.”
He really loved Boursin cheese and his mother (My Sister Jayne) wasn’t all that happy as we were introducing him to expensive foods that were hard to obtain in Rishton, Lancashire back then.
However, whatever year it was it makes a superb lunch or supper dish, served with a tomato salad, and a chilled Chardonnay.
Serves / Makes:         4 servings
Prep-Time:                10 minutes

8 slices bread, any type of rustic country bread such as Pan de Campagne
1 tablespoon butter, softened
Spread each of 4 slices of bread with 85 grams of Boursin cheese, cut each bacon slice in half lengthwise.
Place 2 pieces of bacon (4 halves) on top of each of the prepared slices of bread and cover each prepared half with another slice of bread.
Evenly butter the top of each sandwich, place each sandwich butter side down in a frying pan over a medium heat.
