Bnanana's Wrapped In Bacon

"I have only ever made these a few times, but a friend used to bring these to any B.B.Q' s all the time. I remember once, she brought her plate to one of our barbies, and there were a couple of nasty comments, over what she had brought. DH cooked them and I have never seen so many people literally "Eat their words", they were gone in no time at all. And after the barbie a few people asked for the recipe, I must admit Karma worked overtime that day! lol After that, she was known for her Bacon Na-Na's and everybody used to wait for them!"

I'm rating this a five because I realize it is meant for a grill and I made it on the stove. I am totally looking forward to grilling this someday (it will be so much better). It tasted better with eggs because it needed something with it. Grilling would have made it crispier and it would have been fine on it's own, in my opinion. I made a late breakfast of this. Yep; don't be scared to try this one. It has bacon, for goodness sake. I made this for Alphabet Soup 2019. I was gonna make it some time or other, anyways.
