When my husband was a child he was one of 4 children, times were very tough in his family and his mom would always try and stretch the income by making easy yet comforting foods they were easy on the budget. This recipe I was given to by my mother in law before she passed. I made it as a surprise for my hubby and it did bring back memories, I hope who ever tries it will like it.
