This was good. The only thing I changed was not using the bacon. We very rarely use bacon & the very few times we do, we use turkey bacon. I did not have any on hand and made it without and it was still good. We are big salad eaters, so it went quickly. Thanks, Jenny.

Delicious! I made as a side for grilled steak...potatoes and salad in 1 dish...what can be better! I used normal red potatoes and cut them into 1-in cubes since I had some I needed to use up. For the white ale, I bought a Shocktop Belgium white ale. I left off the cheese due to family preference but I did not miss it as the other flavors were wonderful.It's best eat the same day. Beer made it taste funny after sitting in the refrigerator a few days.
