This is a recipe I came up with as a version of a recipe I remembered always ordering at a family style restaurant that no longer exists in my city...about 20 yrs ago I started making this for my was a favorite for many kids sleeping over...even now as the kids have become adults with families of their own, both mine and what I call, extended family, I get this recipe requested when they visit. It is one of the simplest recipe's ever to throw together in a short time...I always keep the ingredients stocked in my cupboard...hope you agree.
