"I've made this many times over the years. Can make it the day ahead, just don't bake it until you want to serve it. I love the salty sesame seed butter mixture on the crust. I usually use horsey sauce instead of straight up horseradish to give it a milder taste. Great to dip in au jus too."
"I first made this recipe in 1996 when it appeared in the magazine and my family loved it. I just made it again last week and the entire thing was gone in one evening...and there were just three of us. It's perfect for a picnic or football Sunday."
"i meant to give it 5 stars! ;) oops!"
"huge hit in my house with 3 guys! only did horseradish on half due to picky eating & both sides went over really well :)"
