This came from a cookbook called "Like Grandma Used To Make". I love the addition of the bacon.

I made this as directed but also added some chopped red capsicum for extra colour, went really nice with our casserole main, I did overcook mine a little (forgot to use the oven timer) but it was still lovely!
