  4. Mix with mayonnaise.
  5. Spread seasoned mayonnaise on toast rounds.
  6. Top half the rounds with cheese.
  7. Fry bacon.
  8. Cut each slice in four.
  9. Slice tomatillos in 12 fairly thin slices, dip in flour and fry in bacon fat until lightly browned.
  10. Cut jalapeños to make 24 thin slices.
  11. Place 2 cilantro leaves on cheese, add 2 pieces bacon, a fried tomatillo slice and 2 slices jalapeño.
  12. Top sandwiches with remaining rounds, mayonnaise side down.
  13. To serve, preheat oven to 375 degrees.
