(Editor’s note: This is the actual casserole that Julia Helen made and served Daddy/Bobby and me this past summer when we spent a night with her and Aunt Julia in St. Matthews. Very yummy! Julia Helen was also kind enough to share with us the recipe, from a cookbook called “Best of the Best from South Carolina.” The notations you see here are from Julia Helen’s cookbook, but funnily enough, Grandma/Momma/Bee also had that exact same cookbook.)
