I originally am from Maine. There are quite a few different variations of Chop Suey however, my Dad who was a 'cook' in the Navy called it American Chop Suey. This is a one skillet meal and it is very easy. If you make it the day before, it will be better as the flavors have a chance to marry together. I have made this for 67 years and it is my son's favorite to this day for comfort food.
