I do not know the origin of this recipe. This is an old family recipe that my grandmother would make for us on Easter, after our egg hunt. She was born and raised on a farm in Iowa. We always looked forward to this meal. She would always serve this with bacon, juice, and milk.

Tasty! I've never had anything like this before and I thought it turned out good. I did reduce the servings so it didn't take near as long as stated to boil/thicken. Also I did add extra salt and pepper b/c I felt it needed it. This was fun to try and different...I would make it again! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

So good and a great way to make a dent in the hard boiled egg after Easter cache! We added sausage this time and the family devoured the pot! Read More

I used to eat this as a kid it's still good. Portions are a little off. Even after halving it I still made too much. Read More
