Smart Shopper Tip:Cook’s Note:
This is a hearty, perfect breakfast sandwich for families on the go. Wrap the sandwich in foil and send it on the school bus as your children are racing out the door. It even works great as a quick suppertime meal with a warm bowl of soup. Cook the bacon in the microwave to save time and clean-up.
