READY IN: 17mins
Recipe by mandabears

Wonderfully easy and so delicious. I used a spritz of cooking spray and a container(3 ounce) real bacon pieces instead of bacon. I served this with some buttered noodles.If serving 6, use 2 cans corned beef.

Just made it this morning for the third year in a row. I use a half-pound of deli corned beef; I tell the guy behind the counter to slice it in one half-pound chunk and then I slice it to my preference before cooking. I love how quick, easy, and delicious this is!
