    Too spicy for my taste, but otherwise really yummy. Even my anti-veggie husband thought they were pretty good. Next time I'm cutting down on the garlic and pepper. - 1/25/11

    I prepared this with pork bacon instead of turkey bacon. I liked the slight sweet taste to offset the heat. The next time I prepare this meal, I will lighten up on the pepper - 9/14/08
