This is SO GOOD! It’s not often that I get a full house of positive feedback on my cooking but this recipe definitely nailed it for all 4 of us.
I left out the paprika as we had none and just used the cheese and bacon I had available – it was delicious!
Served with garlic bread and wedges for a quick and tasty meal.
