This is a main dish my Papaw created when he was a mess hall cook at the beginning of his military career. He never actually measured anything I've attempted to give the approx. measurements as I saw him make this. This is by far my fave dish that he made. You may have to play with the measurements a bit. You want the final result to be a little sweet but not too much...
