This southern recipe has long been enjoyed as a "holiday" food. Found on many tables at Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, funerals and weddings:) This recipe appears in the "Being Dead is No Excuse" cookbook. However, I've tweaked it a bit. Mom used to fix one quite similar to this recipe for many, many years. Will post pictures later.
