Fontina Toasts: Bacon-Wrapped Cheese Melts
Each bite is a combination of well-balanced flavors, highlighted by the light, earthy taste of Dofino® Fontina.
¼ cup onion marmalade
4 slices smoked bacon
8 ounces Dofino® Fontina
Lurpak® Slightly Salted Butter for frying
Cutting on the bias, cut 16 thin slices from the baguette. Lay them flat on a baking pan and top with a dollop of onion marmalade. Set aside.
Cut the bacon slices in half. Thoroughly cook the bacon, keeping slices pliable. Cut eight (1” x 2” x ¼”) slices of Fontina. Wrap one piece of bacon around each slice of cheese and place on top of baguette slices. Top with remaining baguette slices.
Brush the outside of the sandwiches with butter and pan-fry them over medium heat until golden, about 3 minutes per side. Serve warm immediately or keep warm in a preheated 275F oven until ready eat.
