Sorry for the rating, but it's basically the same as the BLT tomatoes everyone does except on french bread. Looking for something original....

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 19, 2012

These are awsome....totally delicious. I made my own pesto sauce which is very easy. The only thing I will do different next time is to cut up the bacon and sun-dried tomato into 2 to 3 sections so that it is easier to take a bite.
