      I worked for General Mills for over 35 years. I found this recipe in one of their Bisquick cookbooks years ago, and have making it ever since. My husband and I love it, and my Catholic Mother thought it was a great choice during the lentin season. In fact, we're having it for dinner tonight....Fall is here!!!!

      I hated Mom's other Lenten recipes, but I loved this one. Thanks for posting it, Linda Lou! My husband liked it; he had no idea there were religious ramifications.

      THANK YOU LINDA LOU 11! I have been looking for this recipe for years, since I lost it. Seems like I first found it on a bisquick box, but even the bisquick site didnt have it. I also had teenagers in the home when I first started making it and we all loved it. Thank you so much for submitting it. Patsy5
