Recipe taken from the cookbook "Foods that Made New England Famous" by Mrs. Clifford Nelson, East Boxford, MA. She Wrote: "Here's an old-time recipe that has been handed down from one generation to another. It's one born of New England frugality, fashioned for those who need hearty and warm food after a long day of work; yet it has a flavor delightful enough to perk up the logiest of appetites"
