    1. Cook bacon in a large frying pan over medium heat until evenly browned. Drain and cut into bite size pieces. Set aside.

    We used this recipe camping, and it was great after a long hike! Instead of biscuts, we used sourdough rolls and cut out the centers to make bread bowls. Yum!  -  30 Jan 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    Very good. I made it at home in an iron skillet and placed drop biscuits on top and then finished off in the oven to ensure browning. Will definitely make again!  -  20 Sep 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
