This is a very tasty dish that is easy to prepare. You may want to add a little heat to spice it up.


Made this without the eggs. Not my favorite recipe. I don't like to cook with bacon fat due to the fact that animal fat is not good for your health. Will not try again.


I wanted to make something different from our regular type of meal. This recipe was easy to make and mouth watering while cooking. I did include the eggs on the top, but would be wonderful by itself. I'm so glad that I tried it!
