My family requests this at least twice a month. My 10 year old daughter is always like "YES!" when I tell her I am making it for dinner. :) Absolutely LOVE this recipe!

Boy, this is an old recipe -- from Better Homes and Gardens in the 1950s. I've served it since then. It's a good way to get veggies down reluctant kids.
