|Melissa had to stand on her toes|
see in the massive pot!
I've been using the same recipe forever. I never really thought about it being a "sweet" recipe. It's the way I have always had it. the recipe does have an "if desired" written next to the sugar. Compared to Melissa's it was definitely sweet, but I still like it that way better. I assume I got it from my mom and I normally make it every time I make chili which is not often enough. I then have leftover to smother in syrup for breakfast. It's a simple easy recipe that you can whip up in a few minutes. If you want to double the recipe, you can bake it in a 9 by 13 inch pan for the same amount of time.
