So, I wasn't sure if this would fly with the family, yet what the heck, it's gonna happen. I used a pie crust, store bought, aka lazy. I also used bacon bits, the good ones!! I did everything the recipe said to do otherwise. My husband, daughter, and stepson loved it!! I really loved it as well. Super easy to make too. In fact there was NONE left, G-O-N-E. I am glad I grabbed an extra piece before sitting down, DANG they were animals over this!! Yep, this is a keeper!!
sounds similar to something my nan and ma would have made as a child living in the Welsh valleys,, shipple thou??? never heard of it,, "jibon" was and still is used as the word for spring onion/green onion or scallion. The only other world used sometimes was sibolsyn, Mind you,, there are differences in words used from South to North.
