NotesI have seen this recipe many times and finally made it! The ingredients didn't seem to me that it should go in a 13x9 pan so I used a 11x8 and it was the perfect size! 13x9 would of been to big! If you are feeding more than 5 people, I would make 2 of them! Recipe from deweydecimal (Taste Of Home). Photo by me!
