Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp, stirring occasionally. Remove with a slotted spoon; drain on paper towels. Reserve 2 tablespoons drippings.

  4. Bake, uncovered, 1 hour or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Sprinkle with remaining bacon and, if desired, chives; let stand 5 minutes before serving. Yield: 8 servings.

This is a little bland, but we will try again. Maybe add some onion, sausage, garlic. Love the texture!

Very tasty brunch casserole dish. I will make it again. I'd like to try throwing in some onions and cheese for additional flavor.

MY REVIEW

I usually make cheese grits, but the maple-bacon combo in this recipe is a real winner. I used egg substitute for the eggs, and dark (Grade B) maple syrup, which has a more pronounced flavor. Great for a brunch.
