My daughter announced at the dinner table that she was giving this recipe 5-Stars and the rest of us all agreed! It was definitely a tasty dish. I topped it with white Asiago cheese as that was what I had on hand. Made for the Memorial Cookathon for Sharon's DH.

These were so easy to make and were a great side dish. I forgot the chives, and used regular bacon rather than veggie but otherwise made as directed. Will make these again! Made for PRMR.
