MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 3, 2014

Made this last night. It tasted ok, and I would eat it again, but certainly not something I would go out of my way to make, again. The maple syrup flavor was very mild, and the bacon and the green onions and French fried onions did not really contribute to the flavor at all. For the amount of time invested, I was not impressed with the overall result.

My husband loved this. I think next time I will add a little more maple syrup, didn't really get any maple flavor.
