My mother-in-law gave me this recipe. Its from a diabetic cookbook
Every time I make it, I get compliments.
Hope you enjoy it!
One other thing, prep time is according to how fast you get everything together.
I state here that cook time is 1 hr 30 mins. That's 30 from prep to end of time in skillet browning. 1 hr in oven.
