You may wish to add salt or pepper to the final product, but I found that with the rendered bacon, it did not need any additional seasoning.  If you prefer, you can cook the bacon a bit crisper, but as it comes to pressure it will soften.  I have also made this with the bacon removed after rendering and simply added as a garnish.  This is up to you and your preferences on texture.

    I made this a while ago and it was so good! Now I want to make it for a side for company. How long would I have to cook it if I doubled the portions?

      Thank you! To double the portions I would use the same cooking time. You can always check the tenderness and cook a few more minutes if not to your liking. Enjoy!
