We have used this recipe in our family since the 1970's, and ALL family members, guests, and coworkers have loved it! The one change we make is to fry up the bacon first (much easier than trying to dice it raw), set aside, sautee the ingredients according to the recipe, then crumble bacon into the sauteed mixture. The final blend of flavors (many which are strong flavors by themselves)become a wonderful, satisfying, subtle flavor of its own, with none of the original strong flavors apparent. Yum!
