    Skypoodle's Note:

    This recipe has a Southern US tradition, but I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and I can remember my mother talk about how the butter would squirt from the loaves that Grandad would bring home from Fisherman's Wharf. I don't know how close this is to what Grandad brought home, but it sure is good! Being comfort food, use butter or don't bother.
