REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
I have made this recipe for 150 people two times and preparing to make again . Everybody loved it easy to make night before and heat in oven next day for hour or so . We heated in convection oven in individual pans for service of eight came out of oven ready to serve to table family style. Great recipe.

This recipe was a lifesaver! The caterer (bbq) we had planned for a graduation party cancelled at the last minute. This was easy to put together and worked wonderfully!

I made this recipe, as written for a bereavement dinner at church for 98 people. I received many complements, and am making again to freeze in smaller batches for quick meals. Thank you so much for this healthier recipe to an old favorite!!
