My Oldest niece Erica Adams gave this to me and I forgot about it until we were talking about my running out of casserole ideas. This is one of her family favorites, and I have joined the club. As usual make as written then you can adjust to how your family likes it. ENJOY!!!! and thanks again Erica.
