Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! This has always been one of my family's favorites, but my treasured binder with this recipe card in it disappeared one day many years ago. I can not begin to tell you how much even my youngest son enjoys this recipe. I go a little light on the paprika when I know he'll be eating it.
