I liked this a lot! It was a little heavy on the bacon, but then again I served it with mac and cheese and oven fried chicken, so I really wanted it to be more of a vegetable side dish. I will definitely make again but with a little less bacon and red pepper flakes, which were a little too spicy for us.
