    Debbie R.'s Note:

    From "Cuisines of Portuguese Encounters", in which the author gives recipes from her time in Portugal and its colonies. She said this dish is popular in Portugal and with the Portugese-Americans in southern New England. It is served for all three meals. Check out the prep method on this. I've never seen anything like it. I haven't tried it yet.
