You'll need

4 thick slices (about 360gm) smokehouse bacon, such as Pialligo Estate (see note) 8 thick slices soft-style cornbread or brioche (see note) 180 gm vintage cheddar, sliced (see note)

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 180C. Place bacon in a deep roasting pan and bake in the oven until softened and warmed through (8-10 minutes). Remove from oven and heat oven grill.
  • 02
  • Arrange bread slices on a foil-lined oven tray (you may need 2 trays). Grill bread on one side until golden (1-2 minutes), then turn, place bacon on half the slices and cheese on remaining half and season to taste. Grill until bacon browns and cheese melts (1-2 minutes). Sandwich together, cut in half and serve.

Barrio uses Pialligo Estate smokehouse bacon (available from select grocers and butchers), cornbread from Canberra's A Baker (if cornbread is unavailable, substitute brioche or soft white bread), and Bodalla cheddar, available from Supabarn supermarkets.
