  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Combine the blueberries, sugar and vanilla bean in a medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat until the mixture is the consistency of jam, about 15 minutes. Add the lemon juice and a few drops of fish sauce to taste. Keep warm until ready to serve.
  3. Meanwhile, whisk the eggs, cream and milk together in a shallow bowl. Assemble 4 sandwiches, each with 2 slices of cheese and 1 chocolate bar between 2 pieces of bread. Dip each sandwich in the egg mixture.
  4. Add 2 tablespoons of butter and 2 tablespoons of bacon fat to a large cast-iron skillet and heat over medium-high heat. Once heated, add 2 of the sandwiches and cook until evenly browned on the first side. Flip and then place the skillet in the oven. Let the sandwiches cook in the oven until the cheese is melted, about 5 minutes. Repeat with the remaining sandwiches, butter and bacon fat.
  5. Cut each sandwich in half and place the halves on a large platter. Drizzle them with the condensed milk, top with the blueberry compote and sprinkle with Maldon salt.
