Use precooked bacon to save time. Microwave according to package directions to crisp before you assemble the sandwich. Havarti is a Danish cheese that's semisoft with small irregular holes and a mild flavor; substitute Muenster if you can't find it. Strawberries, apple slices, or cantaloupe will pair nicely with these flavors.
