      Wonderful sammie! I cooked the bacon in the mocrowave, as I prefer to do that. I also only made one, since it was just me at lunch. Made for Recommend Tag '09. :)

      These were really good. I had a harder time turning them than I expected - ingredients kept falling out - but we just ended up having a really good sandwich to eat with a fork!

      These were so awesome! I like to serve most grilled sandwiches with Thousand Island on the side for dipping and it went particularly well with this sandwich, IMHO. Dugan INHALED this sandwich then ate mine. I had to make another.
