the kind of food that feels like a warm hug after a hard day.This dish, of course, requires the

accompaniment of creamy mashed potatoes, ready to lovingly embrace the rich, creamy gravy. Add a

side of lightly buttered green beans or a hearty head of corn to add a fresh contrast to your plate.

And for an absolute feel-good experience, a biscuit as a side dish would be welcomed with open arms


at every table.
