This casserole has been on the table for every holiday dinner at my parents' house, and my own, for as long as I can remember. I'm giving the proportions for the smaller size, but you'll need to double it and use a four quart casserole or a 9"x13" pan for a larger crowd. It's not gourmet, it's just good.
