Someone's In The Kitchen With Dinah

Available via
 This recipe is from the classic cookbook titled Someone's In The Kitchen With Dinah (Dinah Shore, Doubleday, 1971).

As described on book's cover, this "Dinah Shore's personal cookbook - Dinah tells exactly how she prepares over 200 of her favorite recipes in her own kitchen."

There's a chapter dedicated to "Eggs, Brunch and Bread", although it's a very small part of a rather extensive cookbook.

Dinah Shore introduced this recipe like this in her cookbook, "My cousin, Selma Lewis, was one of the most popular girls at Vanderbilt University when she was a student there. She's bright, pretty, laughs a lot and gloriously, and - something I didn't know until I visited her and her husband recently in Memphis - is also a great cook. Here's a sample."

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