“Delicious and impressing looking for our dinner party!”
-Birmingham, AL

“I made this ahead of time for company and it was delicious…I reheated when dinner was almost ready. The only thing is my bacon was not crisp like the picture, so next time I will cook some bacon before and add to the beans.”
