Great sandwich! I was so tired from working all day, and didn't want to make a huge meal....this was perfect. Originally planned for lunch, but tonight it was dinner. Very satisfying and a hit with all. Thanks for sharing! Made for FYC tag game.

Oooh, Pat, this was soooo nice! Decadent :) I tagged this, and then got home late due to heavy traffic, this was a fabulously quick and satisfying dinner after a long day and rauiny weather :) I had everything except sourdough bread, so used the regular toasting bread I had, will make this again with something special though!! I cooked a chicken breast fillet along with the bacon, and used fresh chives from the garden. Even my pup Buddha sat hopefully by the stove inhaling those oh-so-wonderful aromas, hoping some of it was coming her way! (No ;) lol) I only made 2 sandwiches, but made all the filling, so there's more for today :) Thanks Pat, this was awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! made for Consideration Tag Game
