    You're welcome. I hope you like it. Mom made it a lot. She tried to keep things simple.

    Very good! My family has a favorite recipe as well, but this is good, too. I forgot to mash the potatoes, which is part of our recipe, and it was good. I only got 4 -- 1 - cup servings. - 11/19/14

    So glad you liked it! It's time for me to make it again. It's probably my grandmother's recipe, and who knows before then! I think I was figuring 1/2 cup was a serving.
