For this recipe you need fully cooked bacon! I like to cook bacon in bulk in the oven and keep it in the fridge or freezer to have on hand. To bake your bacon preheat oven to 425F line a baking sheet with foil. Place bacon in a single layer and bake for about 13 minutes or until the bacon is crispy to your liking. I like mine very crispy! You can also cook your bacon on the stove top if you want but I prefer the oven method, no bacon splatters!
I like to use shredded sharp cheddar, Colby jack or Monterey Jack cheese. You can even use pepper jack if you want some spice!
