Method

  1. Butter bread. Put wedge of camembert or brie on the unbuttered side of one slice of bread. Top with a spoonful of cranberry sauce. Drizzle with a few drops of balsamic vinegar, if you have some.
  2. Put the second slice of bread on top, buttered side out. Fry in a hot non-stick pan, pressing down with a fish slice, for a minute or two on each side, until golden brown and melting. Cut in half and eat straightaway.

Really simple and tasty. Particularly liked the method of frying the bread, the flavour was lovely.

This is one of the nicest things Ive eaten over Christmas, it made a change from turkey. I used brie which was lovely. I could eat this everyday!

Cor! You couldn't keep the pounds off if you at this too often but lovely comfort food. Would be great after too many bevvies the night before. I used brie instead of camembert and red onion marmalade that I made a while ago (recipe also on this wonderful site). It looked just like the picture.
Lovely sarnie.

A really tasty (if not very healthy!) lunch: I didn't have any cranberry sauce so substituted tomato chutney - delicious!

I could eat these every day. I liked the brie too; I also tried a variation using honey and thyme. Yum!

This is my guilty pleasure weekend lunch!

I use brie instead of camembert sometimes, it's just as delicious!

The perfect way to use up excess cranberry sauce after Christmas.
