I usually don't post a recipe if I haven't tried it already, but I figured I had better put this one up before it got lost - or destroyed - I just "rescued" it from my husband's hand inches away from the paper shredder! It is on a page torn from a 35-year-old magazine.
It looks and sounds delicious to me, and, other than the bacon, fairly inexpensive.
The not-so-good photo is my photograph of the magazine's photograph!
