Granny Peg's Treet Casserole

Patti Burns


This is one of my favorite childhood "Treet"'s. My granny Peg went to Hawaii when I was eight years old and when she came back she used to make this for dinner for me on special occasions. In 2008 I asked granny to send me a copy of the recipe, I thought of it every now and again and wanted to be able to share it with my family, well was I surprised when an envelope showed up at the house a few days later with a copy of the recipe, in my OWN handwriting!! When I was a teenager I got in trouble once and she made me write recipes on 3x5 cards for her as punishment, I had forgotten all about it.
