Moccona Coffee & Maple Bacon Sandwiches

I was recently asked by Moccona Coffee to develop a recipe for them for the relaunch of their website. They wanted me to create something that involved 2 of my favourite things in life… coffee and bacon! How could I say no?!

After a weekend spent furiously recipe testing in my kitchen, I came out with the most incredible sandwich that was sweet and salty, crunchy and smooth. It was the best of both worlds and I am definitely going to be making it again. And again.

Not only is my Coffee & Maple Bacon Sandwich oh so delicious, it was photographed and styled by my ultimate dream team Luisa Brimble and Stephanie Somebody. Watching them work together was an absolute pleasure and I tried to soak in as much of the experience as I could.

And the results? Well they speak for themselves. The new website is gorgeous and the photography and styling is second to none. Just look at this table chock-full of treats!

And now it wasn’t just me who contributed to their new site, I was in good company along with several other super talented food bloggers. Here’s a snippet of the recipes that were shot that day. I’ve bookmarked them all for future baking!
