made this with left over ham steak and as others have suggested, I cooked the mushrooms a bit longer in bacon fat. (Everything is always better in bacon fat) Thanks for the reicpe!

This is delicious as written - although I can see some red pepper flakes kicking it up a notch. I used thick applewood smoked bacon and a full sweet onion and a half pound of mushrooms. One reviewer said the mushrooms were a little moist for her liking so I gave them a few extra minutes in the bacon fat. YUM this is an excellent main dish or side dish to.... anything. Going in the box for sure!

I loved the bacon with the sprouts but the mushrooms were too moist for my taste. So next time I'll cook the mushrooms under brown and then add the chicken stock. Thanks Bonnette :) Made for Cookbook tag game
