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.
What you need:
- A knife and a chopping board
- A pot for the apple preparation
- A pan for the bacon
- Some baking sheet
Ingredients for 2-3 persons:
- 3 apples
- 1/2 a Camembert
- 75gr bacon (I used smoked lardons)
- 5 to 6 bread slices (I like using the Poilane Bread Sliced Walnut)
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
- Salt & Pepper
Before you start:
- Peel the apples & cut them in small pieces
Ready to go?
- Preheat the oven to 175 degrees C.
- 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.
- Serve immediately with a mixed salad.
- BON APPÉTIT !
