This is a recipe from 1937! I love this dish because it reminds me of my grandmothers cooking. Simple ingredients - simply cooked and my "Nana" was the best cook in the whole world.

I served this as part of a good old country dinner for my grandson & he thinks that his "nana" is the best cook in the whole world! I didn't change a thing & it was absolutely delicious. Thanx Lorac!

I made this in a roaster oven, since our single oven was busy with a prime rib. I used buttermilk. It was fabulous. Had DH and I talking about his late father who probably dined on this regularly when he was growing up! Very nostalgic and delicious! Thanks, Lorac! Made for Regional Cooking Tag.

Simplicity is always the best. I did not bother to layer this. I just sliced it all up in a food processor, mixed it all together, cooked per recipe instructions and enjoyed it. I actually used this as the main course of a vegetarian meal. Thanks Lorac for another great recipe.
