    Epic Smokehouse triples up by adding some smoky bacon into the mix, joining pulled pork, grilled ham, smoked cheese, whole grain mustard, and sliced pickles between two slices of pressed bread. You'll vow never to suffer through a bacon-free Cuban again.

    Mintwood Place Chef Cedric Maupillier tops his with sweet and tangy bacon and onion. It’s thin enough to eat two, and you can order it at dinner or brunch.

    Entrusting the meat masterminds behind Red Apron with your breakfast order is a strong move. Nathan Anda and Ed Witt created The Patriot -- a bacon, egg, and cheese housed inside the restaurant’s Italian-style specialty bread called a tigelle.
