I went to a mothers brunch the other day and this was the meal that was served with different kinds of fruit. It was so delicious so I asked them to share the recipe. They were so generous to share that is was a Paula Deen Recipe.
I made it while my mom was here visiting. This entree serves 6-8 easily, so it would be great for pot luck gatherings or if you needed to take a meal to a friend who just had a baby or a sick friend who just came home from the hospital---
Of course if you love to cook you could make it for just about anyone and it wouldn't eat up your grocery budget!
