This was a recipe my grandfather taught me when I was a kid and it's stuck my whole life even my Husband who was a meat and potatoes man liked this recipe and my children love it also.. My Grandfather came up with this recipe because he had 11 mouth's to feed and the ingredients where easy to get and inexpensive in that day (1940's) anyway..He made this recipe with Spam I know your all saying yuck but when mixed with the rest of the ingredients its really good..
