What do you do when you’re craving something gooey and cheesy, but your scale rudely reminds you that you should consider eating some vegetables?

Nevada miners in the 1800s lived largely on beef, bacon and beans. Maybe they might get to a larger community or town once in a while for a nice restaurant-style meal, but mostly it was beef, bacon, beans and a little salt pork.
