Here’s a super easy, great tasting brie and bacon mini sandwich appetizer that your guests will love this holiday season. The only way this could be easier for you is if I brought it to your party!
Oh yeh, there’s also fire roasted red peppers and hard boiled egg. What’s not to like!
2 French baguettes – sliced.
10 slices thick cut butcher style bacon (as the cook you can eat any extras).
5 hard boiled eggs.
2 – 8 oz jars of fire roasted red peppers.
8 oz brie cheese (preferably slicing style which is formed like a stick of butter)
Olive Oil and balsamic vinegar.
salt and pepper to taste.
Hard boil the eggs.
Fry the bacon, and when fully cooked, but still soft, remove them and slice them into 1 inch pieces (one for each slice of bread).
Slice the fire roasted red pepper into 1 inch pieces (one for each slice of bread).
Shell the eggs and slice them into nice slender rounds.
Slice the baguettes into thin slices (no more than 1/2 inch thick)
Mix olive oil and balsamic vinegar in a ratio of two oil to one vinegar. Then brush the mixture onto the sliced bread.
Slice the brie into 1/4 inch or so thick slices.
Place one slice of brie on each bread, and then add the bacon, red pepper, and top with egg slice. Add a little salt and pepper.
Done. Did I mention this is super easy to make!!
We have been hit with a cold spell in SoCal. They say it is the tail end of an arctic wind from Canada. Don’t laugh or throw anything at the computer, but at night it is getting down into the low 40’s to high 30’s F and only up to maybe 60 in the day.
I know what you’re thinking.
But really that is cold for these parts. And if the cold spell were to last long enough it could impact fruit growth, or OMG maybe even wine grapes. OK this is much worse than at first I imagined. What can we do? Maybe collect old socks from around the world to cover the little grape buds. Not sure that’s workable but I’m thinking on the fly here.
On a related story, I took my power walk at the beach, yes all bundled up because, yes it was like only maybe 50 degrees, and I watched some boogie boarders without wetsuits trying to catch non-existent waves. Clearly a group of hardy northerners taking a break from their harsh winter weather.
No kidding, a 60 degree high for the day, that’s cold for sure.
