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.
