"Just made this tonight.. We LOVED it!! Doubled it for our family and we have no left overs. Even my picky grand-daughter ate it up. Not a fan of thyme, so I added parsley. The tangy sweetness of the sauce works so well. If your like me and "don't like mustard", I must say DO NOT skip the dijon in the sauce. I would have liked more sauce, as it was a little dry but the flavors definitely have us hooked!!"

"Simple and delicious! We had no leftovers, made two servings for two hungry adults. I only made very minor adjustments. Three slices of bacon was plenty, fried the ingredients in the bacon drippings instead of using olive oil, didn't use any thyme, added salt. I overcooked my potatoes accidentally so they came out a bit mushy but it was still very good."

"Absolutely a wonderful dish. I use Andouille sausage just for extra flavor."
