This is my grandmothers recipe, she was a cook in the local high school, and we used to get served this, it is simple and delicious!

Wowsers! I don't believe it. Two bites and I was back in 1953 at lunch in the cafeteria at Horace Mann Junior High, eating lunch and worrying about the math test I had to face fifth period. This is a real taker-backer! And it is one of the very few cafeteria recipes I actually liked. Thanks for submitting it.
