This is a recipe my father taught my mother. He learned how to make it while in the army - WWII! I watched how they made it and have used it as a comfort food since childhood. This is NOT a recipe for those who are counting calories, watching their cholesterol, or worried about carbs! CAUTION: do NOT add any salt.
