"This was a good vegetable to add to the table, but was beat out by the stuffing, mashed potatoes, turkey, and gravy. The bacon makes it a hit."

"I am trying to get my husband closer to his roots. So I decided to look up German recipes. He ate it and really liked it. This is going to be made often."
