Family Recipe Friday: Grandma Madsen's Tamale Pie

Johanna Bruhns Madsen (1886-1965)
Welcome to another Family Recipe Friday! Today's recipe is from my maternal great grandmother, Johanna Bruhns Madsen (my mom's mom's mom). Grandma Madsen's Tamale Pie recipe has been passed down through the generations (I found this in my Great Aunt Rae's collection), and this yummy dish is still enjoyed at our family functions. I hope you'll enjoy it, too!
