"I learned to prepare this dish from a local chef before I was married, but I've varied it slightly," Jennifer Class of Kirkland, Washington shares. "Served with a green salad and rice or potatoes, it makes a simple but elegant meal for two."

MY MOTHER'S FAMILY was of German descent and enjoyed sausages and frankfurters. This recipe was one of their favorites.
