Beth's Story

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!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
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.


6 slice
great bread, toasted/or split english muffins
6 slice
good cheddar, provolone or other cheese
1/2 lb
smoked bacon, cooked and drained
6 slice
thickly sliced ripe tomatoes, or more!
garlic powder
colorful sliced bell peppers, precooked
grated parmesan cheese
fresh basil

Directions Step-By-Step

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.

Thanks Cin! If you like dice the colorful veggies and add to the bacon; and stir into melted Velveeta, but I prefer a nice cheddar or mozzarella.
