Review This Recipe
Good, but does need something else
I have to agree. This is a good dish, but is pretty bland. I did fry some lean bacon, then added the milk to the same pan so the bacon drippings( mostly crisp, because I used lean bacon) would add flavor to the sauce. I also used parmesan cheese and some garlic salt. It still seemed to need something else, perhaps more seasoning of something, or more salt. I kinda thought it might be the blue cheese that is causing it to have a bland taste. But other than that, the recipe is pretty good, just needs more ingredients to give more flavor.
