Comments:  The thing I love about hand written recipes is that they are often written in the hand of the person who gave them to you, or there is a little tag line on the recipe card that says who it's from. Typed Internet recipes just don't have that personal touch.

This recipe is from our beloved Aunt Ruby, who is no longer with us. I always think of her when I make them. She was a great cook!

Note: I usually don't add the meat, but that is how I originally had them and it sure makes them delicious.
