Another one from grandma's recipe box.... This is from an old newspaper and at the top says "Friendly Gatherings, No matter what is traditional in your family holidays perhaps you might look to a change by trying one of our traditions." Grandma started making this for part of our Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner when I was about 8... Once I was old enough to be in the kitchen cooking, about 9, this was always my dish to prepare....
