Don't ask me how the folks up north came up with this, but it is comfort food for sure.
It is the best because you can adjust it to your likes any ol way ya like : -)
I first had this at my friend Marcine Miranda's house at about the age of 12.... her step-mom (Marie if my memory serves me) made this often as she had a crew to feed and mostly boys! Marcine liked to add lots of pepper to it and I believe that is what makes this taste the best. Also have a well buttered slice of white bread along side.... yummy!
