"Neither of these recepies are it. I t was make with russet potatoes. It had many ingredients but the main ones i can remember is ground beef, there might have been ground pork also but defenitely the last ingre to go in was italian salad dressing. I've kept most of my cook booksa since the 90's but may have lent one or two out. I have such a stack and I can not find. Back the I was only purchasing country women and taste of home. It would be wonderful if you could help me. I would like to take them to a church pot luck..The last time I did they were a hit and I made about 75 of the, thanks for your help kathy"
