“This recipe uses simple/inexpensive ingredients that you are sure to have around the house. I grew up eating this and consider it true comfort food! I found the recipe in an old cookbook of my mothers called "Second Helping, Please", though I've adapted it slightly to suit my preferences. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do and don't let the ketchup scare you!!! This is really quite tasty.”
