MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 3, 2014

"Very good, and I like that it doesn't have tons of ingredients. I used both crushed rosemary and thyme. I too used 4 strips of bacon, but mine came out burnt, so I would recommend using thick-cut bacon next time. My family liked this, and I would make it again."

"Made this for company. Absolutely delicious. Used 4 slices of bacon as had it frozen in 2's. Only other change i made was to use bit more flour & water to make gravy. Will make again."
