This is an old recipe from my great grandmother Sullivan (she gave the recipe to my grandmother Mabel Kennedy Sullivan).

With a big family like Great Grandmother Sullivan had... you use everything you can and don't waste anything! (She had at least 15 children!!).

This is good at every meal time... and snacking...

Eat it as is... or with a favorite dip, salsa or pasta sauce.
