  • butter
  • 1
    pack of bacon bits
  • 1
    small onion, chopped

    green and one red pepper, seeded and diced

    slices white or brown bread

Heat a little butter in a frying pan and fry the bacon until cooked. Add the onion, sweet peppers and herbs and continue to fry until the peppers are just tender. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Remove from the heat.

Butter the bread on one side. Divide the filling between half the slices of bread, spreading it onto the unbuttered side. Cover the filling with grated cheese and then the remaining slices of bread.

Cook the sandwiches in a jaffle maker or, if you don’t have one, cook in a frying pan until crisp and golden on both sides. Serve immediately with a salad on the side.
