My friend introduced this sandwich to me when he made it for his son. It is not that waistline friendly but tastes amazing as a treat now and again. I made this sandwich using Marks and Spencer’s Made Without Wheat French Boule loaf and Violife dairy free cheese.




  • 4 slices of gluten free bread
  • 2 slices smoked bacon
  • 2 slices dairy free cheese
  • 1 tablespoons grated dairy free cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 4 tablespoons dairy free milk
  • salt and pepper for seasoning


  1. Grill or fry the bacon for a couple of minutes on each side until crisp
  2. Make up two sandwiches with the bread, bacon and sliced cheese
  3. In a shallow bowl whisk together the egg and milk, season with salt and pepper
  4. Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a shallow pan over a medium heat
  5. Dip the sandwiches in the egg mix then place in the pan
  6. Cook on one side for 3-5 minutes
  7. Heat the grill to medium
  8. Top the sandwiches with the grated cheese and then place under the grill until golden brown
