Open-Face Bacon, Cheese and Olive Sandwiches

READY IN: 17mins
Recipe by Caroline Cooks

Love olives? You'll like this sandwich. May use pimento-stuffed green olives as a sub for the black olives. Sandwiches will freeze. To freeze: Before broiling, wrap tightly in foil and place in Zip-Lock bag.

This does make for a tasty sandwich, even with the ingredients as is! Next time, I want to try this on a heavy whole wheat bread & maybe with the suggested homemade cheese sauce! Quick & easy! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this Spring's Pick-A-Chef]
