5 ounces Apple wood smoked Bacon, cut into 1 inch strips
1/4 White onion, sliced
1/4 Green bell pepper, sliced
1/2 Tbsp vegetable oil
3 ounces cheddar cheese sauce
1 10" Italian hero bread
salt and pepper to taste

Begin by heating up vegetable oil in sautee pan. Add bacon to render out bacon fat but do not cook all the way through. Once most of fat is rendered, add onions and peppers and cook together with bacon pieces until bacon is fully cooked and onions are translucent. Add salt and pepper to taste. In a separate pan, heat cheddar cheese sauce until smooth and consistent in texture. Cut open bread by slicing straight down the center on the top of the roll. Toast in 350 degree oven for 4 mins (optional) and fill with bacon, onion and pepper mixture. Top with cheddar cheese sauce. Enjoy!
