"I probably shouldn't have rated this recipe, because I actually haven't made it. However, it reminds me of a recipe I used to make about 44 years ago when I was a new wife. It was made just like this and it was one of our favorite Saturday morning breakfasts. I made it again and again. And, I will be making this one this weekend. It sounds exactly like the one I used to make. I wore out the recipe card and lost it a long time ago. Thanks for this one."
