“I made this for dinner tonight and was impressed. Simple but good. I found a few similar recipes posted, but not this exact one. I adapted this recipe (slightly) from a recipe found in the Shady Maple Employee Cookbook: Recipes from the Heart, a cookbook published by the employees of a restaurant I used to hostess at. The original recipe was submitted by Edna Horning. Serve with a green salad.”
