I admit I have no idea where my Mum found this but this was and still is always a favourite as a side dish with roasts in our family. I apologize that I don't even know it's proper name though I am sure it would have one. It is very easy to do, hope you enjoy! All done in the microwave.

My husband loves this side dish!!! Although, I also sauteed the bacon. I just can't cook meat in a microwave. But it turned out fantastic and everyone loved it. Will be trying again, and also adding as a side dish to our holiday meals! DELICIOUS!!
