This recipe is awesome. ChefShelly made it for us when I got out of the hospital after having a baby. Tonight as I was making the recipe though I realized my only suggestion is to use a bigger pan. I used a 2 quart casserole pan and it was just to small so I put it in my 9x13 and that works much much better. Goes great with garlic bread to!
This recipe is SO bomb! There's something honestly delightful about the taste that I can't quite put my finger on. Serve with breadsticks and cold Coke!
