Personal Notes:
I believe my mom copied this recipe down from an old Graham Kerr TV cooking show "The Galloping Gourmet". She started making it in the 60's for special occasions. My husband and I always requested it for our "birthday dinners". That is, until we moved back to New Jersey. Now we have to make it ourselves. It's just not the same without my mom fussing over them, always worrying that they won't turn out just right. But you know what? They always did. And it was always our favorite dinner entre.
