Some recipes just get you talking about the old days, which is why we love them so much. This is one of those recipes that gets my mother to talk about her childhood. The school lunch ladies often made this around the holidays and she loved it so much that one of them gave her the recipe for it, which has led us to enjoy it for the past couple of generations. Nothing like an heirloom recipe to bring memories back to life, especially around the holidays.
