Beth's notes for this recipe:
Nothing is simpler than these hot broiled sandwiches. They're a combination of: cheese, bacon and tomato on an English muffin.
Sometimes we just crave these for supper; or for lunch when we're home on a chilly day.
You can vary the bread by toasting enough multi-grain bread, Italian bread or sour-dough bread, and layering a thick slice of tomato and cooked bacon, with a wonderful cheese like cheddar, provolone, or your choice. They're so good, you'll want more than one!

An amped-up bacon sandwich... yum!! This would also be great to serve as an appetizer. Just cut it into small pieces and arrange on a decorative tray.


Lightly toast bread of E.muffins; cook bacon until crispy and drain; slice tomatoes; prepare cheese if necessary to slice.
On a cooky sheet or broiler pan, place bread, layer tomato and bacon and cheese on each slice of bread.
Broil until cheese is melted and slightly browned.
Serve while hot, careful of the melted cheese.

Sometimes I feel creative and if you want to add things, like green pepper slices that are slightly pre-cooked, or fresh basil leaves on top. Garlic is always good sprinkled on top, or grated parmesan cheese! Go for it!
