Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Again, this was a family favorite for many years. Matt would request these.

They are so much easier than banana croquettes, but taste the same and serves more people.

It was especially popular in the 80s to serve these at potlucks. The Holiday Inn North used a version of this recipe, with whipped cream instead of salad dressing. Stonehearth also did that for a while on salad bar. I enjoyed those a lot.
