Over 50 years ago my husband and I traveled to visit his aunt in Dearborn, Michigan and she fixed this dish. It was wonderful, she gave me the recipe and I've never changed a thing.I have always made it just the way it was written. I usually serve this with just a pan of cornbread and a light desert.
