    I noticed 1/2 cup oil in the ingredients but no mention of adding. Also oil is not used in other recipes.

    I’m assuming you fry the onion with the bacon & ham? Recipe did not say that

    Is there a mushroom or cabbage alternative filling. I only need a small quantity as the rest of the family will eat the bacon and onion ones

    Are there alternative fillings suitable, for my vegetarian friends? I never fry the bacon and onion first, taste very good anyway.
