It really doesn't get much better than this--total comfort food. I wanted the bacon to permeate the pie, so I briefly sauteed the apples in the bacon grease, and then mixed them with the sugar, omitting the lemon peel. I also used various old apples which made them tenderize faster, so I only had to bake it for about 20 minutes, though I did increase the heat to 425. I actually made this for dinner and it was a huge hit with my husband and kids--everyone had seconds! Next time I may add more cheese and maybe mix some in with the apples.
