“This recipe was given to my Mother in 1961 in Omaha, Nebraska. My Dad was in the Air Force there (my parents were new to the midwest). My Mom got a whole new menu for Thanksgiving from her neighbors and those recipes are what we still have today for Thanksgiving! * You can make ahead and freeze this before baking and then thaw in the refrigerator 1 day prior to baking! Helps a lot with all the Thanksgiving cooking to get it out of the way in advance.”
