Serve hot with diced lettuce, tomatoe, onion and sour cream if desired. Inspired by my mother who is now in a nursing home and cannot remember the recipe - she won an award years ago and was published in our local newspaper. I make this and take it to her and her ladies at her table once in awhile. She loves it - as does everyone who eats it.
