Oh wow! This is my mom's signiture dish as we were growing up in the 1970's and everyone raved about it. When I first got married in 1988, she sent it to me and now it is DH and his band members favorite and I get requests for it all the time. Yes, heed the warning, it can be a little bit salty but still is yummy!! We usually eat it with a big leafy and veggie filled salad to help off set the salt.
