I made this tonight and it was a huge hit. I followed the recipe mostly as written except I didn't use the reserved bacon drippings I substituted canola oil instead. I used Panko bread crumbs with a one to one ratio with the flour, to give the coating a bit of crunch. Always allow your breaded meat to rest 15 - 20 minutes before cooking - it will help the breading to stick to the meat better. Cut back on the red pepper flakes if you don't tolerate spicy. The sweet and spicy caramelized onions along with the crunchy bacon go really well together, however, next time I think I'll cut down on the brown sugar a bit. It was a moist, juicy, crunchy, cheesy, delicious bit of goodness! Family said it's a keeper!
