Notes

We like to serve this over rice, quinoa, or along side a baked potato or sweet potato, and a salad or vegetable. It'd be great on a sprouted or sourdough bun with avocado spread too!

I adapted this recipe from ACleanPlate.com to be a little quicker to cook and to use less bacon for affordability.
