Made for ZWT-8, mainly because it's such an ingredient-friendly quick fix that can be made ahead & has loads of versatility. I think it's ideal as a snack item & esp in to-go, picnic or patio dining situations. DH & I actually enjoyed it for our breakfast, paired w/oatmeal & fruit. I used individual baguette rolls that are very popular here & my own hummus (Recipe #483527). The combo of bacon & hummus is so good that I may well make bacon an optional add to my hummus recipe. Thx for the idea & for posting this recipe for us.
