Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This recipe has gone through many iterations. The above recipe is Peggy and Albert's first recipe. I had never had lentils before they made it for me the first time. I have changed it a little each time I make it. Now, I use about half a stick of pepperoni and save the rest to throw into each bowl as I reheat it. I also use about a pound of bacon. You probably already have figured that out about me. The more bacon the better. I use beef broth and bouillon interchangeably. I also leave out the potatoes. I don't much care for potatoes these days, except for the occasional hash brown, tater tot, or French fry.
