My family has made this recipe for years. My kids ask for this and will definately be at home when I make this for dinner, I even get calls from grown kids out of state requesting this recipe.(Even my kids friends ask for this) It's easy and filling, to me the ultimate comfort food. Can be easily adapted for party fare or family snacks. Can be frozen for up to a month. I make 2x batches and it never makes it to the freezer.
