Stormy's notes for this recipe:
As I grew up this was my favorite meal on the school lunch menu. As my kids grew and their meal menus changed I made this at home so they could enjoy a piece of my growing up.

These can be made in the oven or done on a grill. make them many and put them on crackers as an appetizer.

This recipe is over 40 years old. I ate them at school. Then have been making them ever since
