I remember eating this at church dinners, on Easter, on Christmas, in the fellowship hall with my then-kindergarten-aged peers. Just seeing it these days takes me back to that glorious time right before the 90s began that everything just seemed perfect for me as a 4-year-old. Even today almost three decades later, there isn't a single Christmas or Easter gathering at my parents' house that my mom doesn't make this. Try it out for yourself and see if it doesn't become a holiday tradition for you and your family as well!

A Note from Bethany...
Since my father was diagnosed with Celiac's disease several years back, the bread used in the recipe can easily be substituted for gluten-free bread. I've eaten it with both types of bread, and you can't tell the difference!
