About the Recipe

This recipe is a family favorite and has been feature many times at local fundraising events. We love to serve this as a side with a big plate of spaghetti and a fresh salad. It reheats well in the oven if you have leftovers, or you could try it Mike's favorite way: in the morning spread with grape jelly!
