Okay, I know you probably are looking at this recipe because anything with bacon is worth checking out (been there, done that). You might be a little surprised to see this combination of ingredients. But fear not — these ingredients go perfectly with each other, and I don’t make those kinds of proclamations lightly.

Normally I’m the kind of person that swaps ingredients in recipes, thinking I know what’s best, but not in this case. I repeat, not in this case. At least try all these flavors together one time in this perfect lunch sandwich. Then I guess you can make your own choices after that.
