Blue cheese, peach and bacon grilled open panini

My latest favourite movie is 'What to Expect When You're Expecting' - if you've had a baby (and even if you haven't), it'll make you laugh out loud at the funny-cos-it's-true moments. 

During the film, two characters (food truck owners) are arguing over the other including bacon in one of her dishes. She then mentions, that yes, she added bacon to her Blue cheese, peach and bacon grilled panini. It sounded like a great combination, so I gave it a go tonight, adding walnuts since they go so well with cheese. 

To the above photo, I would add more peaches and another rasher of bacon, which I've included in the recipe below.

Blue cheese, peach and bacon grilled open panini

Inspired by a dish mentioned briefly in 'What to Expect When You're Expecting'.

Serves 2

Blue cheese, about 150 grams
Half a tin of sliced peaches (or one fresh peach or two apricots)
a handful of shelled walnuts
8 thin rashers of smoked bacon
1 regular panini roll (split) or 4 slices of thick sliced bread

Preheat the oven to 220 degrees (celsius) or on the grill setting.

Place the panini halves (or sliced bread) on a tray. Tear the blue cheese and place chunks randomly on the bread (remember, it will melt and spread). 

Place sliced peaches on top of the cheese and sprinkle with the walnut pieces, crushing them slightly in your hand as you sprinkle.

Ribbon two rashers of bacon on top of each one.

Grill until the cheese is completely melted and the bacon is crisp.

Serve immediately.
