Aside from the bacon and cheese, this is similar to the taste of cabbage rolls, but a real easy, lazy way of making it.  You can use sliced sausage instead of the bacon, if desired. Or leave them both out.  I think the cheese is a must…real good with cheese.  But then I love cheese!  The black pepper makes this dish a bit spicy, so if you like, you can reduce it by half to suit your taste.
