I have been making this for years..... I like to use homemade strawberry or raspberry pepper jelly.... gives it a nice twist.

Served this last night to our small group. Everyone really liked it and asked for the recipe. I didn't have time to prepare it the day before; in fact I made it about 4 hours before serving, and it was delicious! I used packaged bacon pieces. Recipe is quick and easy to prepare. A keeper!
