    This was great! I just crumbled my eggs on top though. Its easier and you don't have to worry about how the egg looks while peeling. I used bacon pieces since I had them on hand and it was still really good. I plan on making this again with some maple bacon I have in the freezer. Thanks - this is a keeper!
