To celebrate 45 years of McDonald's in Japan, the chain is bringing back a pie stuffed with bacon and potatoes. 

There are a lot of reasons to envy the residents of Japan, and now there’s one more because McDonald’s has announced that it will be bringing back one of its most popular and delicious-sounding menu items: The Bacon Potato Pie.

According to Rocket News 24, the Bacon Potato Pie was a classic McDonald’s pie, in that it was a crispy pocket of fried dough stuffed with a gelatinous filling. But where in the U.S. that sleeve of crispy fried dough might be stuffed with apples and cinnamon, this new version is a savory option made of bacon, potato, and onion.

The Bacon Potato Pie was actually a long-running item at Japanese McDonald’s from 1990 to 2002, but it’s been away for some time. Now it’s coming back as part of the 45th anniversary of McDonald’s Japan.

The Bacon Potato Pie comes back on October 12 and will cost 150 yen, or about $1.48.
