TI LOVE this recipe, it is so quick and easy to make and one of our favorite recipes, I make it on on the stove and its done in no time. I use real bacon bits its so much easier then cooking my own bacon. This is a must try.

Amazing recipe!! My whole family loved it! I added about 2 cups of chopped, fully-cooked ham instead of bacon, and topped with chopped green onions! Very good recipe!
