I think I wrote down this recipe while watching the Graham Kerr cooking show back in the 60's- not sure of it's origin. It has food spots on the paper..and I remember making this when we bought our first home...it is very good..the crust is extra good..I hope you try it; as I have posted it the way I made it..
This can be made with rotisserie shredded chicken or shredded beef if desired.
