Recipe by MailbagMary
This recipe came out of The Woman's Day Encyclopedia of Cookery from 1966. This set of books taught me how to cook as a young bride in 1972. This is one of my favorite recipes out of these books, and every year after Thanksgiving I make this casserole. I think this may be the one and only recipe I use now as a 'seasoned' cook from these cookbooks, but can't get rid of them! Feel free to lower the calories as you see fit.
