Apple, Camembert Cheese & Bacon Tartines

I’ve spent last week in France, so I thought it would be nice to share a French recipe today… and eh… who doesn’t like melted cheese?? These tartines only take half an hour to prepare and can be served either as a starter if you keep it to 1 tartine per person or as a main. The bacon and cheese are rich, so I advise to serve them with a side salad.

  • Let’s start with the apple preparation; in a pot:
    • Melt the butter on medium-high heat and add all the apple chunks
    • Cook for 10 minutes till the apple chunks become soft, and stir from time to time.
    • Add the vinegar and cook for another 5 minutes.
  • While your apples are cooking, let’s prepare the bacon:
    • In a pan over medium-high heat cook the bacon for around 7 minutes, till they brown (no need to add butter or olive oil)
  • On each slice of bread, add:
    • The apple preparation
    • Some bacon
    • A couple of slices of Camembert cheese
    • Salt & pepper
  • Place the tartines on a baking sheet and cook in the oven for 10 minutes.
