Note from Chyrel...
I wanted to send you this recipe, it's a special one from our family. We have
had this every holiday for as long as I can remember.
My Mother got this recipe back in the early 50's from a chef at the Montecito
Country Club and we have always had it. It's funny but my cousins all make it
too and I was so surprised to find that out.
My Mother has served this dish every Christmas and Thanksgiving for over 50
years. It's just as popular today with family and friends as it was years ago.
