Why I Love This Recipe

My Dad was a wonderful cook and he never gave away his recipes, but my brother and I would watch him cook and he sometimes turned his back while he put in a special ingredient. We loved everthing he made and this is one of the best. Dad passed away in 1995 and my best memory is of Mom and I preparing Thanksgiving without his presence and missing hiim so very much. I added the Spatzels to complete the meal
