“This is the signature dish of a great little South Baltimore, MD eatery. My friends and I simply cannot eat there without sharing an enormous portion. It's not fancy, but man is it satisfying. NOTE that this recipe makes an very large quantity (12x17", 2-3 inches deep), so halving it might be a good idea.”
