    Had this while camping this weekend - GREAT stuff!!! Have this a few times since and it always turns out very good. I have even left out the bacon/ham for a veggie teenager and still delish! This time I served it Italian Bread Bowls from allrecipes. DH & DS thought I bought them from a bakery. Some adjustments I've made: cut the amount of cheese by a cup and use a pre-shredded cheddar/jack blend, cut bacon amount in half, use O'Brian style frozen potatoes (cuts a ton of time). Super easy and super yummy!

    This was just okay for us. It just didn't seem to have enough flavor for our liking...maybe some garlic or something. I plan on trying it again, but will play with the recipe a little bit.

    Great minds think alike - this is so similar to my recipe. I use shredded hash browns. I used to use carrots but this week I tried the corn and it was awesome. Goes great with Texas Toast.
