    Without eggs

    Shirley Tyler from JONESBORO, GA

    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!
