I've made this recipe 4 times over the holidays. A huge hit at every party.
o.k. i didn't make this or eat it , my DH made it for dinner when i was @ work & it's lent so no bacon. my dh gave it 5, my ds gave it 4 (cause no bacon), my dd gave it 3 (she's 12 and difficult about EVERYTHING). my dh said it was a breeze to make and tasted great even w/out the bacon. my ds thinks bacon should be apart of everything. he didn't know there was upposed to be bacon untill he read the recipe but raved before he knew about the bacon. with all that begin said it's going to made again and will be apart of the rotation. thanks for the post.
