Quick, easy and enjoyed by my family greatly. My husband said it was better than the recipe that I have slaved over. I did use one short cut, i used precooked bacon from a bag in the salad dressing aisle and it was perfect and cut one messy step out of the process. I will definately make again and will make in larger batches for family get togethers
