This recipe gets it's name from the times when grandma had to make do with what was in the pantry, usually a day or two before payday. The name may say poor, but the taste is anything but! The kids love this, some may be picky about the onion though. If yours are, substitute a teaspoon of onion powder for the onion. You'll get the extra flavor without having the drama of onion pieces being picked out of their dinner.
