My husband and I were dating when I first made him this dish, which is an old favorite of mine. I would swear it was this entree that made him decide to marry me. Today, our kids eat them as fast as I can make'em.
It took me years to work up the nerve to try a recipe that called for meat to be wrapped around pickles and cooked. Once I did, though, it became a favorite. My husband and boys request this for Christmas dinner.
My mother used to serve this to our family as a one-dish meal by adding sliced potatoes with the carrots. I've updated it by substituting mushrooms for the potatoes and adding chili sauce. It's also good over rice or mashed potatoes.
