This is okay, but don't think I'll make it again.
This produced a quite reasonable meal for us. However, the flavors did not seem to complement each other very well. I don't really know why. On the first evening, especially, the flavor of the bacon seemed to come through too strongly. The dish did mellow some by the next day. I am sure this evaluation is just a reflection of my own preferences. Thank for for sharing this recipe with us.
