I am excited to share this recipe with you. You see, I am pretty sure I grew up on this stuff. My mom made it all the time when we had company over as kids—the adults and kids alike loved it! Other than the Sunday breakfasts that my dad would make, this is the other major memory that I have of bacon. How I loved it when my mom made this!
A couple of weeks ago, El Hub and I were invited to join several other couples from our church for a “guys game and girls scrapbook night.” Being that we have ZERO social life, we worked it out for the sweet little darlings to spend the night at the grandparents’ house and I set to work (relatively, speaking) to whip this up to take. Just as I expected, it was a huge hit! I mean, how does one not love bacon and cheese and crackers?!
