I've had this many times. The first time was in Indiana. There are several variations, but it is always good.

I live in a high rise apartment for seniors who live alone in efficiency apartments. I made this on Saturday and shared with several neighbors who all asked for the recipe. We cooks all share our creations with neighbors as we don't have families to feed any longer, but we still like home made food!
