“We got this recipe from a restaurant cook who lived in the duplex beside my mother-in-law," recalls Monika Rahn of Dillsburg, Pennsylvania. "It was one of his favorites. It’s easy to make, tastes just great and freezes well. Both my mother-in-law and her neighbor are gone now, but this recipe always brings back happy memories!”
