Lea VaughnLarry’s sister, Jean Seabourn, gave me the original recipe for his when I lived on Kingman Drive in Indianapolis.  Link was home from college for the summer and Lance had just graduated from high school.  We had a house full of our favorite teenage boys that summer, including; Larry Dye, Greg Thistlethwaite, John Smallwood and Dan Teglund (our foreign exchange student from Sweden).  It was a great time in our lives, and I really needed recipes that would feed a bunch. Everyone seemed to really like this!  I often made it with leftover turkey.
