Have you ever eaten something in a restaurant and wished you could make the same thing at home? The Soup Lady is not shy about this: first you ask for the chef, complement the daylights out of him and then ask for his recipe. This maneuver almost always succeeds but most times it results in portion sizes suitable for the entire cast of Sergeant Bilko and Gomer Pyle put together.
In this recipe, an original creation developed by Harsh Betty's grandfather, he has done us all the kindness of listing the ingredients for both restauarant and home preparation.
