Place the Brie cheese in the cut hollow of the bread and spread a layer of cranberry sauce on the bottom half of the loaf.
Add a sprig of rosemary, a little olive oil, some butter and freshly cracked pepper.
Top it off with the cooked crispy bacon. Place the top half of the loaf on top of the filling. Drizzle a little olive oil on the bread lid.
Bake your wrapped sourdough loaf in the preheated oven for about 15-20 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the loaf is heated through. Once it is finished, let it cool for a few minutes before slicing and serving.
