A long-time favorite of kids and grownups alike in our family! It's VERY easy, so great for beginners or very young cooks.

I first had this dish MANY years ago at a Mother-Daughter school potluck. It was easy enough to duplicate, but I tweaked it a bit to make it my own. Definitely a hit whether it's on your dinner table, or at a church social.

An excellent hot dish for potlucks, this recipe can easily be doubled or tripled!
