Notes

I got this recipe from a Vegetarian cook book, and it has quickly become one of my favorites. Every time I make it for a family function, it gets rave reviews. I sometimes substitute the eggs with powdered flax seed and, and it still tastes great. I have also used I can't believe it's not butter and soy butter in place of regular butter and it has worked out fine.
