I am sorry to share that she passed away a couple years ago. I liked watching her YouTube programs.
She got her knowledge onto video so that we could share it. That is one of the hallmarks of a dedicated human who loves the knowledge she has been entrusted with. I am glad to know as much of her as her videos can share.

Tthis dish is real close to a Penn Dutch recipe I learned from Gramma. Skip the tomato sauce but add scrambled eggs instead. We used hotdogs but I have made it with bacon instead.

Musta been a Depression in the 60s where I grew up. That was a not uncommon meal.
No tomato sauce in it but ketchup on it after dished.

That’s a mainstay around Casa de AGreyMan. Since we are clearly a refined and sophisticated sort of people, we do substitute a polska kielbasa (polish sausage) for the hot dogs. We have it for supper every couple weeks.

No ketchup, though.

I must have grown up in the 70s depression because that's pretty much every third meal at grandma's kitchen. Fried taters, onions, "meat", whatever else she sent us to fetch from the garden/ window still/ fence line asparagus/ etc. There was food growing everywhere at their place. I'm striving for that here, but with the better climate I think I can truly achieve 12 months of fresh something without a lot of work.
