    We just loved it! Easy to make, and since my hubby hate onions it was perfect!  -  11 Aug 2010


    I submitted this recipe a few years ago. The amount of bacon should really be 1 lb. The amount listed is way to much. It really is quite good. Freezes well too.  -  29 Oct 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Spices were odd. Needs more egg. I also don't understand why they want you to use flour. It was not necesarry and made the bacon weird. I added an egg, used half and half, and put in some onion, slat and pepper- came out much better.  -  03 Apr 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
