"This is an old recipe passed down from my great-grandma. I remember the whole family getting together on Sunday afternoons and she would always have a feast ready for us. This was always a family favorite."

Made this with our first lettuce from the garden. It was not a head of red leaf, but instead a mixture of red and green leaf lettuce. It was better than we both were anticipating. You do have to be careful when adding the buttermilk as it wants to curdle. I did add a little Wondra® as a thickening agent rather than the flour at the end.
