"Another one I made up as I went along. I put olive oil in the ingredients because most people will choose to use it. But I seriously recommend using bacon grease. It adds a depth of flavour to the dish you just won't get with anything else. We had it for dinner, but add some eggs and toast on the side and you've got a pretty good breakfast, too. Servings assume eating only this for dinner."
