“Easy to make-ahead recipe that's a sure-fire hit! My mom made this for every holiday meal--it makes a lot. Us kids used to fight over the leftovers for breakfast the next morning (it gets too watery any later in the day than that). If you use a clear bowl, it makes for a nice presentation as well.”
