Bacon & Blue Cheese Sandwich

Perhaps a sandwich with an acquired taste, filled with a strong blue cheese and a sour caramelised onion chutney. Top it off with bacon and lettuce and suddenly it just works.

This is a bacon and blue cheese sandwich made with crumbled up stilton, mixed in with mayonnaise to make spread that works wonders with bacon. It’s then combined with a spread of caramelised red onion chutney and a leaf of crunchy Iceberg lettuce in a wholemeal bread.

  • 2 Unsmoked back bacon rashers
  • 1 tbsp. Hellmann’s Real Mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp. Caramelised red onion chutney
  • 1 Iceberg lettuce leaf


  • Before you do anything else, pop 2 bacon rashers in a grill pan – no oil – and cook for 3 minutes on each side using a spatula to press down – then set aside to cool
  • Now add a tablespoon of mayonnaise to a mixing bowl, along with 60g (about 2 tablespoons) of crumbled up blue cheese – mixing both ingredients thoroughly
  • On one slice of wholemeal bread spread on all your blue cheese and mayonnaise mixing, doing your best to spread out to the edges and corners
  • On the second slice of wholemeal bread spread out one tablespoon of caramelised red onion chutney, again spreading out to the edges
  • Pop your 2 cold bacon rashers directly on the blue cheese and then your Iceberg leaf on top of that, ripping it up if needed to cover the bread evenly
  • Finally, pop your sandwich in the refrigerator for 1 hour, cut in half diagonally and serve
