This delicious sandwich, from her book, "Everything 30-Minute, 5-Ingredient Cookbook" by Linda Larsen, cooks bacon in the microwave, then uses it in a wonderful combination of tomatoes and bacon. You could add lettuce, some thinly sliced cheddar or swiss cheese, or some sliced avocado if you'd like.
Dip bacon slices in 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese and press to coat. Place 4 slices of the coated bacon on microwave-safe paper towels in a 12" x 8" microwave safe baking dish. Cover with another sheet of paper towel. Microwave on high for 3-4 minutes or until bacon is light golden brown. Repeat with remaining bacon slices.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine thyme, mayonnaise, and remaining 1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese. Spread on one side of each bread slice. Make sandwiches with the cooked bacon and tomatoes, and spread outsides of sandwiches with butter. Grill in a hot skillet or dual-contact grill until bread is toasted, then cut in half and serve immediately.
