    Be careful - nutritional info might not be right on this. Ingredient list says "one package" of bacon, wheras if you click on the breakdown it says ONE SLICE...sounds like a yummy recipe though! - 8/25/10

    I love making this. Though I do use center cut bacon instead of turkey bacon. Still good though. It does lower the calorie count by some. I don't have the paper in front me but as soon as I find it I'll put down what the count is. - 7/1/10
