This recipe came from Great-Grandma Mary’s stash. Makes sense, it is designed to feed a crowd, in a hurry, with minimal hands on time.

My little helper wanted in on every step of this recipe and even with his “help” and a lot of picture taking it was in the oven within 15 minutes…and the kitchen was spotless in time for dinner to be served. With a secret recipe like this you can feel on top of things for one night too!

This recipe was found on a newspaper clipping and the final paragraph states, Jan’s interests include antiques collecting, Star Starters auxiliary and petting a ______.  So…I don’t know what the Star Starters auxiliary was and I really want to know what she loved petting. Who would cut that line off?!
