Recipe Notes

Helpful Tip: For added freshness, try garnishing this with fresh thyme leaves, chopped parsley, sliced scallions, or chives. It is also great with diced ham in place of the crumbled bacon. Unlike the bacon, you don’t have to worry about it getting soggy, so feel free to add the ham in the last 5 minutes of the cook time.
