  1. OOH LA LA! I saw this photo and said, "I've GOT to make these for lunch! And I did! (shame on me, with my gluttonous appetite, with an even more shameful 300+lb 5' 1 frame) I ate them all. That's right, ALL! I will make these again tonight for my family, as I forfeit dinner, pray to my Goddess Jenny Craig and make a B-line to the treadmill!
  2. Yum! I had to use dried thyme, as I had no fresh on hand, but it was delicious. A bit on the greasy side, next time I think I'll cook the bacon a bit more crispy and drain the fat off better.
  3. Flavour to savour, this is true! Hubby gave it 5 stars plus too! Used diced up low fat bacon as had on hand for the day, Next time will just put it into potato mixture to cook that way! No need to pre-cook and no grease, so can stay healthy recipe! Easy to do, is a keeper for entertaining, for hubby and me! Thanks!
  4. This was delicious! Fatty? Yes, but worth it! I served this with my Easter Ham dinner and got rave reviews from my IN-LAWS! LOL I used a borrowed mandoline slicer for the onions and potatoes which made it a snap to put together. I also used kitchen shears to cut up the bacon before frying. Oh and I DID NOT drain the bacon grease and I used the entire pkg (12 oz)! It was yummy! Thanks for posting!
  5. I'm sorry but this recipe was just Way too fatty for us. If you don't mind soft bacon( it softens while baking) or bacon grease, you might think it's good.I would hate to eat much of this recipe just because of that fact alone. We hated it!!
