Like some other reviewers, I finely chopped the onion and sauteed it for just about a minute in a small amount of the bacon fat. Using a good quality, smoked bacon makes a big impact on this dish and really adds flavor. Don't skimp and use store-bought bacon bits or you'll miss some of the flavor some reviewers thought was lacking. Prepared as directed, put in my 2 quart Corningware casserole and brought it with me to Christmas dinner to serve as an appetizer. Baked exactly as directed and was truly a home run. Everyone asked for the recipe and all have since made it (with variable levels of success due to changes in the recipe, I might add). Personally, I think this is some mighty good stuff. Thanks for the recipe, Kathy. This will be a keeper for me for serving at casual get togethers. FYI - I will try another reviewer's suggestion about serving on toasted french baguette slices. Sounds like a winner, although it was simply delicious on Ritz crackers.
