  1. Hey Larry - How many servings did you get out of this?

    1. I cut it into 4 servings mainly for the purpose of the video. I had a hard time eating that big of a piece. So with that said, I think 6 servings would be more reasonable. Thanks for watching and please let me know how you like it!

  2. There is no way you can fit all of this into a 9 inch pie dish.

  3. What is the name of the sauce you used.

  4. How do you drain off the rendered grease without it sliding out of the dish?
