Not exactly low fat/cal, but very easy, and very good too.

We loved this! Like KITTENCAL, I increased the bacon. I also omitted the jalepanos and used only half the brown sugar (personal taste preferences). Thank you, Pokey, for sharing this superbly flavoursome recipe; I'll certainly be making it again.
