 This recipe is from the classic cookbook titled The Hour Magazine Cookbook (Gary Collins, Putnam, 1985).

The subtitle for this cookbook is "The most popular recipes from America's most informative television show." At the time, Hour Magazine hosted by Gary Collins was the most popular daytime magazine-format show on television.

The Hour Magazine Cookbook only has a few breakfast recipes, but it's worth a look for the many other recipes (many of an exotic nature) that were presented on the program.

From The Hour Magazine Cookbook: "His is a name that's been number one on the Top 10 country charts since 1974 - and he went from rhythm to recipes in Mickey Gilley's Texas Cookbook. He came on the show with his mom Irene, and brought a corn bread recipe that'll lasso in all of you unbelievers.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank Mr Breakfast for this recipe.

I have used this recipe for at least 20 years and it has never failed me. Won't use any other. Bless Mrs. Gilley for a wonderful recipe and her son who is a great entertainer.
