My mother started making this for me and my friends in high school. 12 years later, we can't have a "girl's weekend" without it!

This was a major hit at the party we attended just lastnight. This was the one dish that was "licked" clean so to speak. People were even breaking the empty bread bowl to get the last bit. I liked your introduction too. I can just picture you and your teenage friends gathered around the bread bowl in your pjs having a few giggles. Made for the new P-A-R-T-Y event. Thx JiliBean this is a keeper!

This was absolutely delicious! We didn't have the bread, so we put everything in a pyrex dish, covered it with foil and baked it at 400 for 30minutes....perfect!
