      I loved this recipe! I am new at cooking and didn't have any of the ingredients in other recipes, and I was glad that I tried this one! I did not put in any ham or bacon. I am not a big fan of meat. It turned out great! Thanks!

      Very good. I used bacon instead of ham and it turned out great.
