This is my husband's grandmother's recipe. I received a typed index card with this on it after we got married. My favorite part of the instructions? "After cooking make gravy." I'll try to be a bit more detailed. These are really good, I have yet to meet someone who doesn't like them. This is one of my top choices for parties and holidays. It's great on it's own as an appetizer, or over egg noodles as a main dish.
