Personal Notes:
I was in Jr High when mom started making this. (Biloxi MS) She didn't say if the casserole should be covered or not when baking. She also would have made it from memory most of the time....these amounts and directions are what she gave me when I was a young bride.

Good Luck! It makes the house smell wonderful!
