Hot sandwich with chocolate, bacon, blue cheese and figs

It is a very special sandwich and I am afraid it’s not for everyone. I saw a picture of a mix of chocolate and bacon on Pinterest and obviously I wanted to try it. This time I didn’t use Nutella, as Tomasz has already taken care of a jar. This boy has a thing for a chocolate spread and he can’t sleep as long as there’s a jar of it in our apartment. As I am having a period of chocolate cravings, well… I’m acting on it.

We’ve organised a night of baking Tartine bread with Tomasz, so in the morning we had a delicious big loaf. Yummy! To mix it with salty bacon, delicious and rich in flavour dark chocolate, figs and blue cheese - perfection in a world of a pregnant woman. I hope you’ll love it as much as I did!

You will need:

  • 2 slices of bread
  • butter
  • dark chocolate (like 70%), shredded in small pieces
  • fried bacon
  • fig
  • blue cheese

Heat up a frying pan and melt a bit of a butter on it (like 1 tbsp), place two slices of bread and toast it on both sides. On one of them put chopped chocolate, so it will melt a bit, cover with fried bacon (still hot), add sliced fig and spread blue cheese over it. Cover with another slice and enjoy! The chocolate may end on your hands, but this is a price to pay for a hot chocolate sandwich ;)

Enjoy, Marta

8/8 Our figs are the most delicious figs in the entire universe, but the thing where sometimes they grow mouths and sing Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On” at passerby is kind of weird, to be honest.

Te duck pond still has some muck at the bottom, but the drainage ditch in the sheep pasture is dry, so the Blue Haired Girlfriend dug it a little deeper.

Either the goats are chasing frogs with their flamethrower again, or the sheep are eating all the groundcover. We’re seeing some bare ground, and worried that when the rains start, the entire pasture is gonna be doom-flavored mud and miserable soggy livestock.

We’d like to refence the back pasture and let them back there, which would hopefully give them enough land that they couldn’t destroy it all. Until the goats build a much larger flamethrower, anyway. Not sure if we’ll be able to this year, though.
