  1. I made this yesterday and it was very, very nice.
    I used 2 diced bacon chops instead of bacon rashers.

  2. Delicious. I put on low before I went to bed at 10pm (added more water) and woke up at 7am with the smell. So nice to have something warm and nutritious for breakfast on a cold morning.
