This dish has graced my mother's, and then my, Christmas table since it first appeared in the Baton Rouge, Louisiana Junior League's first edition of River Roads Recipes cookbook back in the '50's or '60's. It has
graced thousands of tables besides ours!! It is a Louisiana favorite. Hope you all enjoy it!
