READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Jen Andrews

A recipe that I got from my grandmother. One of my husbands favorite. It has a very unique flavor with the bacon. Wonderful side dish with chicken or fish.

This is very good! I drained the bacon all the way and used shallots instead of onion. Some sliced mushrooms would be nice in this too. Served with Bombay chicken.
