This recipe came to me from my grandmother, I remember she used to fix this whenever there was alot of family around. When my Fathers siblings and us would go every year on a fishing trip to a river and it just so happened it was near her house. We spent 3 days over Memorial day weekend there.
I might just use this for Thanksgiving this year.
