Girl, oh girl is this good. Made exactly as written but I used the cayenne pepper option and am I ever glad that I did. Sweet, spicy and hot, just the way I like it. Everything shone, it was sweet but you could taste the pork, spices, and heat. I ate all this myself, I am ashame to say. For breakfast, I rolled a Australian Pikelet around the bacon to make a mini sandwich, so tasty. For lunch I made a bacon sandwich on sweet mexican bread with a crisp watermelon salad. It was great in both forms. A tasty treat that has many varied uses. Thank you so much for sharing this treat. Made for the Fearless Red Dragons - ZWT8 - Mexico
