The following instructions are very simple to follow. The finished product is sure to please. I have been making these for years, it is a recipe that my mother passed down to me, which she developed herself. As part of the church, she is always looking for different easy items to take to the weekly dinners. These have always gotten rave reviews. I find myself also making them for potlucks and work events. Not to mention a favorite in my household. Quite often I make them as the main dish and serve with buttered noodles. When I visit my parents, my mother and I make them together, gives us a great chance to catch up on events in our lives.
