Brulée Brie and Bacon wrapped dates

Happy Sunday everyone! Today you get a 2×1 offer: 2 recipes in one post. Lucky you! Although to be fair, both recipes are fairly easy, quick to make, and go together very well.

Brulée brie is apparently all the rage at this very moment, or how kids are calling it these days “trending”. It is all over Instagram, it has its own hashtag, as all important things in life must according to The Internet – man, I sound really old and whiny-. It is one of those wonderful things that will have its minute or two of glory and then everyone will move on to the next thing. But I wanted very badly to give it a try, especially since I got this lovely torch as a Xmas gift and I had not put it to use yet (shame on me).

  • Brie cheese
  • brown sugar
  1. Slice the cheese and arrange them next to each other. Then carefully spoon some brown sugar on top of each slice.
  2. The final AND most exciting step of this recipe: TORCH! Torch that motherf***er! Torch until the sugar has caramelized beautifully on top of the cheese, and wait a bit for it to set. And then struggle to keep your hands off until served!

  • Pitted dates
  • Bacon rashers
  1. Wrap the dates in bacon. I usually cut one slice in half and that’s enough to wrap two dates. Otherwise the bacon to date ratio is unbalanced for my taste.
  2. Put a non-stick pan on medium heat and fry on all sides until the bacon is crispy.
