This was a very nice supper, espcecilly with the snow flying outside. I thought the ketchup was a little overpowering to the other ingredients and really didn't taste the bacon much at all. I think just cutting the ketchup in half would help. Thanks for the recipe Iowahorse, from one carnivorous family to another :)
