"Found this when going through an old TOH annual. My thought.....where has this gem been hiding? Ridiculously fast and easy. I used minced pre-cooked bacon which I always have on hand. Everything else were things I always have on hand. I thought it was delicious and family agreed. Put recipe in my go-to file. YUM!!!"
