Awesome!! The sauce turned out so rich and creamy and the bacon just makes this extra, extra yummy. I made this for my sister's birthday dinner. It was a super huge hit with all the family. Thanks Nurse Di.
I made this for my son and he loved it. It would probably be fairly easy to "lighten" this so it would be less sinful to eat, but my son loved it as is.
Great recipe! I added thin sliced steak- make sure to cook medium. Delicious!
