Notes









Tips

Expert Tips

  • Pumpernickel bread, of German origin, gets its brown color and depth of flavor from molasses.
  • Cook the bacon in the microwave oven sandwiched between layers of white microwave-safe paper towels. Instead of browing the onion and chicken in the bacon fat, spritz the skillet with nonfat cooking spray.
  • Cut 7 grams of fat per serving by substituting reduced-fat Cheddar for regular and using one slice of bacon per sandwich instead of two.
