    ~jb4~'s Note:

    I found this recipe in my Food and Wine magazine back in June 1997. The lady who created it is named Elizabeth. I have been making it this way since then. I have made it for parties and it is so liked by everyone that most people leave with the recipe. I hope you all enjoy this as much as we have. NOTE: Cook time and prep time does not include cooling times for eggs and potatoes. Don't let the amount of servings scare you, I normally reduce the amounts depending on how many people I am feeding. Just cut everything in half.

      I scaled this back and used red potatoes. The evaporated milk is a nice touch and adds a nice creaminess. Thanks jb4, for posting. Roxygirl
