I still enjoy the superb combination of bacon and rice in this dish. The peas add color and a bit of crunch. It's so easy to make, and so good. — Ruth Ann Stelfox, Raymond, Alberta

"My husband loves this recipe. Asks for it over and over. The only drawback is that the vegetables are cooked in the bacon fat which can be a little on the rich side."
