  1. Cook the bacon in a large, deep skillet over medium-high heat until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Reserving the drippings in the pan, remove the bacon to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.
  2. Stir the butter and flour into the bacon drippings. Scrape the browned bits of food off of the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon; cook and stir together until beginning to thicken, about 3 minutes. Stir the tomatoes into the mixture, using the spoon to break the tomatoes into small pieces while cooking; season with salt and pepper. Add the cream cheese and heavy cream; reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring frequently, until hot and thick, about 10 minutes.

Wanted to try something new and this was it. Fairly easy to make - I used peeled, crushed tomatoes and left out the cream cheese. It is still on the stove, haven't served it yet but my taste-t...

I MAKE THIS ALL THE TIME!!!

Delicious and an unexpected treat for those who've never had it. The reason for using whole tomatoes is that canned diced tomatoes have something on them so they don't stew like they should to m...
