Let's face it, everything really is better with bacon. I fry it up, add cod fillets to the pan and finish with a big, tomato-y pop. —Maureen McClanahan, St. Louis, MO

"I loved the ease of this recipe, and how can you go wrong with bacon? Overall though, not a runaway favorite recipe for our family. The balsamic vinegar is a great pairing with the tomatoes though! A nice weekday meal and quick to make."
