Erldyne's Savannah Rice

Dana Sheppard


This recipe is and was a favorite of the Langford, Braddy, Hansen, and Sheppard families for many years. The lady by which it is named for was one of the greatest cooks and the greatest cook of this recipe. Her love for her family was always expressed in the manner by which she cooked. It is hoped her love will continue throughout the generations as we attempt to copy her recipes.

When I first became a member of the Langford/Sheppard family, my wonderful mother-in-law, Erldyne, made this dish and I immediately fell in love with it. I hope you will agree when you make it.
