Prep:

This was a favorite of my midwestern family's. I watched my grandmother and mother make it all my life and it's just part of Thanksgiving,Easter,Christmas or a large Sunday dinner for me..my father loves it and I cook it about twice a month for him..he can eat a roaster pan alone..I fix it in small containers and he freezes it and takes it out as he wants...he's 90!!!
