When I first tried this dish at a church luncheon, it reminded me of all the wonderful meals my grandma used to make. My family loves the old-fashioned flavor.

"This was so good that two different people have requested the recipe. I had given some of the leftovers to a neighbor who had recent surgery and his wife just loved it. As I did not have sliced almonds on hand, I left those out. I'm sure they add a lot to the dish, but are not necessary to have a satisfying experience. This recipe is real easy to make which is a big criteria for me."
