Author Notes

This recipe, which evolved over many years has been my stand by for about 50 years!!
It is always loved by all. It is easy to prepare and very economical, served with simple
sides such as beans, cole slaw, assorted pickles and potato salad. Also, it is all pre-
pared a day ahead, allowing one to have a relaxing time with the guests. —zoe morris
