MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 6, 2013

Have made this several times. The kids and I love it but the hubby not so much. This time I made it with turkey bacon as I wasn't going to pay over $5 for a pound of bacon. Also used Colby/Jack cheese this time but think I prefer it with the sharp cheddar I usually use.

this recipe became a quick family favorite from the start! i had to substitute fresh spinach for the mushrooms because daughter doesn't like them. here's the recipe converted to cups:

14 bacon strips cooked & crumbled = 1-1/2c

1 jar mushrooms = 3/4 c

1 (10oz) pckg frozen spinach = 6c fresh = 1c cooked & drained

1 (5oz) can evap'd milk = 2/3c
