“This recipe comes from the cookbook "Don't Panic - Dinner's in the Freezer" . It is really delicious. Good with crusty bread and a green salad. I must admit to using the pre-cooked bacon crumbles (about 1/2 cup) instead of cooking and crumbling the bacon. Sometimes it is just easier! Make sure it is real bacon though, not the imitation bacon bits! Enjoy.”
