“I absolutely LOVE this recipe and have not seen this version on this site. My grandma made at least a dozen versions of this and finally found the best. I have to agree, this is amazing. I've tried the other versions of this recipe. They are not half as good as this one. This is my entire family's favorite--possibly the only dinner we can all agree on.”
