This was surprisingly better than I thought it was going to be.  All the ingredients sound good but the soy sauce just threw me.  We served it with Texas toast and edamame.

Our comments:

Hubby- The bacon is a good touch.

Me- More ranch, yummy bacon.  I think it would be good on some sort of specialty toasted bun/bread thing.
