Personal Notes:
Mama and Aunt Laura have told so many stories about this
dish. This was the staple breakfast that Grandma Benoit
cooked on Good Friday. In those days, a good Catholic
would fast from midnight and have only one main meal for the
day. They relate that Grandma would have this prepared and
in the bowls on the table waiting for them once chores were
done. The hardest part was waiting until 10:00 am before
they could eat!! Aunt Laura said by that time a crusty film
would have developed on top. It was so delicious and was
her very favorite part of this Good Friday breakfast. I found
this recipe in one of my Cajun Cook books and am hoping it is
at least similar to what Grandma used to make for her
