"I prepared it the day before and put it in an electric roasting pan. Next year I may try it in the crockpot. Everyone loved it! I would definitely make this again."

"I've been making this ever since it came out in the first Country Woman Christmas book in 1996. Each year my extended family asks me to bring it to our Christmas dinner. I highly recommend it."
