Bacon and cheese hot cross toasties
A bacon and cheese hot cross toastie might seem an odd creation, but it works really well. Sweet and savoury have been best friends forever and here they combine to make a perfect little treat with crispy crunchy bacon, melted cheese and relish to boot. What’s not to love?
- 6 hot cross buns
- 6 thick rashers of smoky streaky bacon
- 250 grams smoky Cheddar cheese, grated
- tomato relish to serve (optional)
Preheat the oven grill to high.
Place the bacon rashers on a non-stick oven tray, cook until golden and crispy, then flip and repeat on the other side. Remove and rest on paper towels.
Cut the hot cross buns in half and place cut side up on a clean oven tray.
Top each half with a small pile of the grated cheese.
Pop under the grill until melted and bubbling, then remove from the oven.
To assemble, cut each bacon rasher in half and place the two pieces on the bottom half of each hot cross bun. Top with a little tomato relish (if you like), pop on the hot cross bun top and devour immediately.
