I have been looking for this recipe for a long time. It came with a small cookbook I received with my Artist-Craft pots and pans I bought 47 years ago. My mom and aunt loved chop suey so I started making it for their birthdays.

They are both gone now, but I have been wanting to make it again. Thank you so much for passing this along. Cheri Stephens

Valerie E. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. I used to make this for my mom and my aunt back in the 80's and 90's. I lost the recipe along the way and have looked for it several times. Originally, I got this recipe from a book that came with my Aristo-craft pots and pans 47 years ago! So happy to have found it again. Cheri S
