Recipe by Juenessa

This recipe is courtesy of Southern Living Magazine, April 2007. You could lighten this up a bit by using reduced fat or turkey bacon; 1/3 less fat cream cheese; and low fat milk.

We really didn't care for this. I used 8 ounces of cream cheese, as it called for in the recipe, but it was very over-powering. After tasting it I added more pepper and parmesan, some garlic and onion powder and it was better. I don't think I'll make it again though.
