I have looked for this recipe for several years now - I'm so glad to have finally found it! A dear old lady in our church used to make this for pot lucks when I was just a child. Her's didn't have oregano in it but it was a tasty addition. This turned out beautifully and reminded me of my childhood. Thanks so much for a recipe I'll turn to again and again!
