Delicious and Easy Lentils

Don't let the ease of the recipe fool you - it is fabulous! I got this recipe from my mom and it is one of my absolute favorite lentil dishes (I often double it). It can also easily be made into a vegetarian (omit canadian bacon) or vegan (omit the canadian bacon/cheese and use olive oil in place of butter) dish.

    I did not add carrots, marjoram or parsley and I used regular bacan instead of canadian bacon and bacon grease instead of butter (I also added garlic & black pepper) but all is well and this turned out to be a fab new recipe for my fam! I'm slowly trying to tranistion my meat & potato husband to other options...this worked fantasticly on my behalf!
