2 garlic cloves,finely chopped
250g cranberries
100g light brown muscovado sugar
4 fresh lemon thyme sprigs, plus extra to garnish

Mini Rosemary and Sea Salt Focaccia
230g Waitrose Somerset Mild Ripe Brie, sliced
2 tsp balsamic vinegar


  1. Heat the oil in a small saucepan and cook the garlic for 1 minute. Add the cranberries, sugar and thyme and cook for 5 minutes, stirring until the
    cranberries soften and release their juices but still hold their shape.
  2. Separate the focaccia into 4 rolls then slice each in half horizontally. Place the focaccia halves on a grill pan and toast lightly on both sides. Spoon the cranberries over the cut side of the focaccia and lay the cheese on top, then drizzle with some of the pan juices. Return to the grill for 2–3 minutes until melted.
  3. Arrange the bruschetta on a serving platter. Drizzle lightly with balsamic vinegar, garnish with extra thyme and serve swiftly.
