Wow...I've been making this for years and my original recipe that I clipped out of Southern Living magazine is literally falling apart and I did a search and here it is! Same exact sons go wild over this! Am making it tonight but for only 2 of us, I've lightened it up with ground turkey and basically cut the recipe in half and I bake in a 9x9x2 inch pan, works great! Will reprint this now and put it in a protective other original one was just taped into my "keeper" 3 ring binder...thanks so much!
