For me, cheddar is practically an entire food group. 🙂
This sounds awesome,
glad you shared it!
Hi Rich! *waves*
That made me laugh. For my youngest son, pizza is an entire food group! 😀 It really is good & easy! Let me know if you give it a try.
Hi Shelli! *Waves Back*
You bet, I forgot about pizza food group, LOL 🙂
Oooh Shelli! The dish looks so good o_O my mouth is watering!
Thank you, I’ll just take this one too! Will come in handy at Christmas time 😉
Thanks again for posting *grin
Hi Sandy! *waves*
Let me know how you like it. I love it because it’s easy and everybody (kids included!) eats it. *hugs*
Hey Shelli (hugs back 🙂
Definitely. I’ll cook it over Christmas. I’ve had great success with the other recipes, looking forward to serving it to my family . Besides it comes ‘kid approved’ 😉
I don’t know why I only get an email once in a blue moon, but I’m glad I got this one. Yum! I do a potato dish for pot lucks/parties where I make a cheese sauce (using the food group ‘cheddar’), and then add sliced smoked sausage…but this would be SO much easier…and no pan to dirty for the cheese sauce. Plus I like bacon better anyway. And if cheddar and pizza can have their own food groups (deservedly), so can bacon…which, along with brownies, I happen to view as gifts from God. 🙂
Hi Kristy! *waves wildly*
Well, I didn’t know you weren’t getting them. Sorry about that. Ah, technology. I’ll poke around and try to find out why. Your dish sounds fabulous, too. And I agree that bacon is it’s own food group. Nutella should be also. Any kind of chocolate really. And brownies, of course. It’s great to catch up with you again. Cheers, darlin.
