I have been looking for this recipe for years. My husband's mother would make it every year as part of Christmas dinner and he says this is it! Very easy to make, the consistency is great for a mold. I served it as a side dish with baked chicken and stored the leftovers back into the mold with the serving plate as its top. Late that night my teenager and his friends ate it again as a snack. It has been added to the list of items to be served at Christmas meal.
