* I made this for dinner last week and was not sure what to make with it so I figured because we are eating a spoon full of cheese and bacon we will have some fruit salad with it lol. But the spoon full of cheese and bacon was so good :) This is a great side and with be good with some grilled chicken I will do that next time I make it. Its not one you can have all the time considering its not the most healthy of side dishes but it is a good treat every now and then. I give it a 5
