Loved this! I did change it by using a whole pound of bacon, I used all milk instead of half&half (I also added some melted butter in with the milk), and I used canned mushrooms and a little more cheese than called for, but it was great! A big hit with the whole family, I will make this one again FOR SURE :)




We thought this was good and worth hanging onto, but definitely needed something to "kick it up" a notch, whether it be some chopped jalapeño peppers or maybe some jack cheese. All in all, we enjoyed it and I will make again. Also, I think I would add a bit more bacon, it wasn't very noticeable.

Yum, very good, I added green peppers and onions. Also used texas toast bread. Was a hit with my guy the breakfast King. Thanks for the post.
