We first had this dish when we were visiting some friends from college early in our marriage. She clipped the recipe from a magazine and made if for the first time when we visited. We LOVED it! Sadly she passed away not too many years after that.

  • 1 Tablespoon instant minced onion
  • 1 Tablespoon parsley flakes
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 2 eggs – beaten
  • 2 Tablespoons milk

The sauce:
