Preheat oven to 170°C/150°C fan forced. Use a sharp knife to very thinly slice thepotatoes.
Tear a large piece of foil and scrunch into a rough 10cm ball the same diameter as the wheel of brie. Place the ball in the centre of a greased 24cm round ovenproof dish. Arrange the sliced potato around the ball. Combine thecream and butter in a jug and drizzle over the potato. Place the thyme sprigs in between some of the potato slices. Bake for 1 hour 20 minutes or until just golden.
Use a small sharp knife to score the top of the brie in a crisscross pattern. Remove and discard the foil ball. Place the wheel of200g (10cm round) triple cream brie in the centre of the dish.
Increase oven temperature to 200°C/180°C fan forced. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the potato is golden and cheese has melted.
Meanwhile, cook thebacon in a non-stick frying pan over medium heat, stirring often, for 5 minutes or until crisp. Add the honey and cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until bacon is glazed and sticky.
Remove some of the rind from the top of the brie. Scatter the bacon mixture over the brie and potato. Serve immediately.

Sunshine in your day!
My beehives are located in sunny sub-tropical Brisbane, QLD and the bees enjoy copious amounts of sunshine all year round. As an organic minded beekeeper I carefully harvest the delicious liquid golden sunshine so you too can enjoy a little sunshine in your day. You can come for a fun tour of the Apiary (Brisbane based) and if you want a backyard beehive of your very own, I have bees for that too!
I purchased some of the "Happy Bees for Sale" and can confirm the both the bees and the buyer are delighted.
Deborah and John were really helpful, giving some great suggestions when they helped out this first-timer. My bees are flourishing and I'm looking forward to harvesting my first honey later this year.
