Total Time

My grandma and dad made this in the family restaurant..way before we knew how bad it was for us. It is really great for a treat, though..especially over biscuits. The amounts are approximate..I never have measured..

Delicious! I made this for breakfast at camp, multiplying the recipe to use 1 gallon and 4 cups of milk. It made way too much for 20 servings, we probably got 80 servings out of it. So, I think 6 servings is a bit too generous, it should be more like 12 or 24 - one recipe would probably have been enough for 20 :) Aside from having way too much gravy - they loved it! It tasted great, even the next day reheated. It took over an hour to make, because that much milk took forever to come to a boil, but I expected that. Thanks for sharing a wonderful recipe!
