There is so much butter in these to keep at least 10 huskies warm while sleeping in the snow. That must be the reason for the name! I made this for my easter dinner, I've had the recipe wedged in my recipe file since 1986! It was from a Seattle Times food writer, John Owens. He always had great recipes. After dinner this evening I was saying how much butter I could cut out of this recipe and my children enclosed me in their arms and said, "Mom, DO NOT change this recipe!!" So, okay, it's a heart attack waiting to happen, but heck, this is something I would serve once a year just to see these people make yummy arm gestures. You can change it if you want...but don't and just wallow in this amount of butter! My goodness! If not cooking for a crowd, halve this recipe and cook 30 minutes.
