This is a recipe I have had for over 40 years but seems to be ageless..Every time I make it I get rave reviews..and the simplicity and ease of preparation makes this a go-to meal for company or everyday...It's great at the holidays to make ahead..then bake when needed...add a salad..and you are done..Easy to double..use a 9x13 pan and increase baking time by 10-15 minutes.
It is time tested and family approved...!!
