Making My Own Food Truck

**I borrowed the idea for this week’s foodtruckalike meal when I saw the ingredients and immediately started salivating. I love the combination of sweet and savory, especially when a grill is involved. And just about anything topped with melted cheese has to be a winner.

Here are the ingredients that I used for a . . .

Sweet Buzzin’ Bacon Melt!

  • Ethio bread. (A thick fluffy break purchased at our International Market. A focaccia bread or other favorite hearty bread would work well too.)
  • Honey
  • Bacon (We prefer Smithfield. When I have coupons and it’s on sale, I stock up and freeze it for occasions like this!)
  • Ripe peaches
  • Brie cheese (We used brie, but thought other mild cheeses would work just as well — and be more cost-efficient)

Fry or oven bake the bacon until cooked but soft. Drain on paper towels. Meanwhile, cut peaches in half, remove pit, and grill flesh side down approximately 7 minutes, flip, then grill skin side down another 7 minutes until peaches are soft and carmelized. Remove from grill and slice into 1/3 inch slices.

Brush bread with honey. Layer one side of the sandwich with bacon, then peaches. Layer the other side of bread with peaches, then slices of brie.

Bake in oven at 375 for 5-10 minutes, or until cheese begins to melt. Finish with 1-2 minutes under broiler to make cheese bubbly. Stack halves together.

Eat in silence with a napkin and a heart of thankfulness for the goodness of God and this sandwich!
