Recipe by Diane Hankins

My mom has made this since I was a little girl and now I make it for my friends and family. There's never any leftovers no matter how much I make.

Excellent. I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out just right. I would have called this dish "Slumgullion Casserole" but, whatever. It tasted great. My compliments to the chef!
