Sometimes watching the grill can take away from family fun time, so this can be whipped up and placed in the oven for more time playing board games or a quick game of tag in the yard. The recipe submission comes to us from the fun show Forever Young, a story of musical discovery now being told in Branson. The tale of five young friends, the basement of a Midwest suburban home, the joy of listening to music played on an actual record player, and the music that shaped our lives. This recipe is aptly named “Home Run” for when we made this for our family, we hit it out of the park!
