This family favorite is a version of my Grandmother Wheeler/Grandmother Fletcher. It is a great dish to warm ya'll in the winter and is easy to fix. I have also used Chicken and Pork tender loin in this recipe. Would love to try this with Turkey tenderloin or Buffalo. If anyone try's this or another variation please let me know how it turns out.
