The bacon in this really gave the stew a great flavor. I changed the flour to 1/4 cup because my DH likes his stew really thick. Instead of the tomato, I added 1/2 can of corn and in place of the 12 small onions I added 3 turnips, cut into 1 inch cubes and 1 small onion, chopped. Along with 2 bay leaves and 1/2 tsp garlic powder, I think the seasoning was great. Thanks so much for helping me make dinner.
