I got the basic ingredients for this recipe from a Holiday cookbook, and added onions to add additional flavor. It was a perfect side dish to accompany the Thanksgiving Turkey and Cheesy Green Bean Casserole.

It is quite simple yet tasty, the bacon adds a bit of crunch and the Balsamic Glaze adds an extra dimension of flavor. Hope you give it a try.
