Additional Notes:

While there is no doubt that several of our presidents used charcoal or wood to cook over open fires during outdoor activities, Dwight "Ike" Eisenhower was known to spend considerable time in the kitchen. According to one of his letters: "You are going to tempt me with that wonderful assortment of spices to don my apron and back to the kitchen go."

    I replaced the onion with a clove of chopped garlic and a shot of Worcestershire sauce. My family loves this and it is a staple at holidays.
