Back when we lived in Alaska, I worked at Boys & Girls Club where we had a lot of potlucks. A LOT of potlucks. I loved the dishes one of my finance friends brought- she always made them from scratch & they just tasted yummy, like I was eating something my mom would have made. This is my favorite dish of hers & before we left, I asked her for the recipe. It came from one of those great church cookbooks where they note the person who submitted the recipe. So, Marion Perison of upstate New York, I thank you for taking the time to add this to the cookbook. You probably never figured your recipe would travel from Alaska to Nebraska to Yellowstone- but I bet it would put a smile on your face!
I hope you enjoy as much as my nephews & I did!
