Recipe by Redneck Epicurean
Everyone laughs at me because I think hospital food is good. Well, it's good if it's hot and it really depends on what it is. This is one of my favorite things the hospital fixes. I was surprised in the best way the first time I was served this. It was deeelish! Thanks to my dietitian, I can make this at home. Evidentially, she does too because the recipe was already scaled down for me!
