    Made this tonight for dinner. My mom and I had a serving and my husband ate the rest! No picture...forgot to take. It reminded us of our childhood dinners. We loved it. Will definitely make many more times.

    I used pepper bacon in ours and it was just hot enough to warm your innards! The flavors melded together so well. We loved it!

    We really enjoyed this one. The bacon adds a nice smoky flavor to the beans and potatoes. I served as a side dish with a burger.
