When explaining the sandwich, Jordan said "i don't know what else to say except that i first made it at 2am one night and it was one of those things that was either going to be really good or really bad. The first prototype was just Pop-Tarts and bacon. and that was good but i thought it was a little bit white-trash so i decided to class it up with brie and pear. The first few people i made it for were totally disgusted by the idea of it and laughed at me up until the first bite"
Class it up, was right.
- 2 cinnamon sugar Pop-Tarts
- 2 slices of pear
- 4 pieces of organic maple bacon
- 4 slices of brie
The way you make this grilled cheese is just as unique as the ingredients he chose. The first thing you'll want to do is to start to pan-fry the bacon. Put your heat on medium-low and lay the bacon in there.
You'll want to crisp the bacon up on both sides but right before it' done you'll want to lay the Pop-Tarts on top (frosting side up) of the cooked bacon. Jordan recommends flipping the Pop-Tarts onto the frosting side at the very last moment and grilling it for about 30 seconds because of how quickly it melts.
After you've grilled both sides, you'll want to add the sliced brie onto the frosting side of the Pop-Tarts. Because brie is such a soft cheese, it melts pretty quickly so it should only take about another minute or two before you'll need to take everything out of the pan.
After you've scooped out the 'tarts, it'll be time to add the sliced pear to one side of the sandwich.
Then add the bacon!

And now top it off with the other poptart, frosting side down.
Crazy, right?? Believe me, it's in your best interest to try this glorious creation.
