It's Father's Day, right? The best thing as far as I'm concerned about Father's Day is that I get to eat exactly what I want all day. So to start my Father's Day off right, I have my son, Will, and my wife, Vicky, make me one of my all-time favorite sandwiches, cheddar and bacon on a well-toasted English muffin. The recipe that follows is no adaptation or affectation. It's just tangy, crunchy, porky, and seriously delicious.
- 8 strips of good bacon (Oscar Mayer Center Cut is readily available and quite delicious)
- 4 ounces of extra-sharp cheddar cheese (I like Grafton Village 2-year-old cheddar, but Cracker Barrel Extra Sharp will also do the trick)
Toast the English muffins until they are a lovely light brown color
Fry the bacon the way your dad likes it cooked (I like mine pliant verging on crisp)
Put enough grated cheese on each half of the English muffin to cover.
Put a slice of the cooked bacon on top of the cheese on each English muffin half
Put the English muffins back into the toaster oven, move the indicator on the toaster oven to top brown and wait until the cheese is all melted and bubbly.
