The first time I made this was years ago for an open house for about 50 people. I guess at the time, no one had ever had it because it disappeared FAST! I even caught one friend, who shall remain nameless, in the kitchen, scraping the empty dish! THAT'S when you know you've got a successful dish on your hands, my friends. If you're serving a larger crowd than, say....8 or 10, you might consider doubling this recipe. You can also make this up in advance. Just thaw and bake as directed. Easy to do and still tasty!

Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!
