Recipe by trese 1

My Mom made this for us every Friday, (Can you guess why?). I loved it & still do!! It went a long way with 3 kids!! I'm 59 now & I still make this for my self now, but it was a regular when my children were growing up. Hope you enjoy it as much as I still do!!

Thanks for the recipe! My mom often made this for us when I was a kid, and I found myself craving it tonight. Since I am trying to watch my fat intake, I left out the margarine and just added the flour mixed in with a small amount of water. I, too, found it a little thinner than what I'm used to, but that's fine. I just added a little more thickening. I had mine over crumbled Saltines. Thanks!
