Actually, in our house we consider bacon a vegetable, but my husband's relatives not so much.

That is my favorite as well and it will also be gracing our Thanksgiving table this year. I, however, will not be holding on the ham and cheese, as in our household. proscuitto (along with bacon) is somehow overlooked as a non-kosher pork product. ;-)
