This easy side dish can be prepared in about 15 minutes flat and then kept in the fridge until dinner time. Our tribe loves anything with bacon and cheese so this was always going to be a hit in our house. If you do happen to have any leftovers, you can mix it through some cooked pasta for a fast dinner the next day, or just heat it up and enjoy it on its own for an easy lunch.
