I suspected this might be a little too bland for our taste, so I added some beef granules to the water. Glad I did.....it added some extra flavour. I will definitely make it again.

This was really quite good. I cooked the bacon in the microwave to save time, so it was relatively easy to prepare. I think this dish would compliment any entree.

I added some beef broth as well. Had some fun with it and added celery and stewed diced tomatoes as well.
