Notes: This is so bacony and yummy! The key to any mans heart let me tell you! The sage adds a lot too, but the bacon overpowered and it was a very very good thing. Another wonderful night with Lucy and cooking. Her idea for the pot pie, mine for the bacon and sage. A must try for sure. It is a killer recipe.
