  1. I love bacon, so I loved this recipe. I served mine with white rice. We loved it! Thanks for a great dish!
  2. my family prefers a more flavorful dish...so i added some of my own spices the second try and they loved it...if you add some seasoned salt or their favorite creole seasoning it does the trick!
  3. I found this lacking a little "something." I added a little extra Wyler's chicken boullion from the shaker bottle to spice it up a little bit. Perhaps I didn't add enough salt to begin with. Although it wasn't a complete disaster, I don't think that I will be making it again. The thoughts of all that bacon grease going into my tummy gave my veins cholesterol attacks.
  4. This sounds really good! And a fast dish to make. I will try this soon!


I live in the San Francisco area and love it here. I discovered Recipezaar (then Food.com..Genius Kitchen) in 2001 and have been so happy to have my favorite recipes stored safely here. I am mother to 7 and grandmother to 7. I love to knit, smock, sew, etc., but my favorite hobby of the moment is traditional rug hooking. This is a sample of what I do.? It's called "November".? I dyed most of the wool myself. It is made from wool flannel, cut into strips a little less than 1/4" and then worked into a linen backing. This is my 3rd rug.
