"The sweetness of the brown sugar onions with the bacon and cheese is the perfect combination! Had dinner done in 20 minutes! Perfect for the low carb lovers and the picky eaters!"
"Turned out amazing! I put it all under the broiler for a minute to melt the cheese before serving."
"This dish has the right amount of sweetness with the brown sugar. My husband says he has never had anything like it but loves it. I will unquestionably be making this again. I did cut this recipe in half and also cut down on the bacon to only 2 slices but chopped it up."
