Recipe by Wendy James
This is a Pennsylvania Dutch recipe my mom has made all my life and it is my favorite dish. She usually serves it alone or with some small side dish, because everybody fills there plate with the pot-pie. My husband never heard of it till I made it for him. Now it is one of his favorite dishes.
