What a nice change to an old standard. It won't replace the original but will appear on our table again. I wasn't sure I would like the thyme but it smelled and tasted really good. The only change I might make is to make the bacon a bit crispy and then take it out and do the rest of the sauce. Just before serving I would put the crispy bacon back in. I really do love a crispy element in my foods. Just a thought as it really tasted nice as it was. Thanks for the recipe.
