This was REALLY good! I made a couple changes to get it down to 5 WW PPV and add/keep flavor. This is what I'm eating it for lunch this week! My changes:
Only kept 1 T bacon fat in the pan instead of 2 (it was plenty!); used about 1/3 c diced onions instead of leeks, added 1/8 tsp cayenne instead of crushed red, used all chicken broth and no wine, replaced sage with cumin (my favorite spice!). YUM!!!
