“My friend Dale was a big eater, as was her construction-worker husband. She made this recipe just for the 2 of them, and would double it if having another couple over for dinner (she gave me this recipe after I had it at her house, back in, I think, 1977). I have indicated "two servings", but I think maybe it can be stretched a little more :-) She always served it with mashed potatoes and cole slaw.”
