So simple, yet so yummy. I remember my mother making something just like this when I was a little girl. And even though our mothers were as far apart as two mothers could be, we both have the same memories. I followed the recipe almost to the letter, except I used matzoh meal instead of breadcrumbs. After all, my mother knew better, didn't she? Thanks so much for taking me back, I haven't had this in years!
