I think firemen are some of the best cooks. This recipe feeds 10 to 12 big appetites, but portions can be frozen for when you want a nice portion of comfort. I'm an empty-nester, am originally from New York State and will always looks for great comfort food from our wonderful friends the Firemen, who many times have to leave THEIR comfort food when they're called to duty. A big thanks to them.
