Kumle (pronounced koom lah) is a dish that can be found at every single one of my family's get togethers. Weddings, funerals, homecomings....any excuse to have Grandma Mickey make kumle is a good excuse. Now, Grandma is a great cook. She's been feeding a large family and an even larger ranch crew for over 50 years. But you ought to see all the people that show up for kumle!

Serve them with butter and then slice the leftovers the next morning and pan fry them.
