This recipe was given to me by a friend of my sister many years ago. I make it for parties, every time I have a gathering. It works well served with toothpicks. It is delicious, easy and takes little effort and no time at all to prepare. I usually double the amount because there are never leftovers!!It is delicious served over rice or egg noodles.
