    Lady Dancer's Note:

    When I was a young working mother some 30 years ago now, this was a fairly regular option for dinner. It was easy for me to put together before bed and whoever arrived home first would pop it into the oven. That gave me an uninterruped hour to take care of after work chores and start the kids on their homework. I tried due diligence on this one to see if it was posted in 'Zaar, but none just like this that I could find. The original recipe called for fresh onion, but today we prefer the dehydrated version. I've also added the optional seasonings in recent years and it's still one of our favorites.
