    Wow. V good.
    My contribution.
    If you like bacon with cheese on a roll (burger bun or whatever it's called wherever you come from), experiment with different cheeses.
    Brie, excellent with cold crispy bacon.
    Stilton (or blue cheese of your preference), excellent with hot crispy bacon.
