"I found this recipe a year or two ago and have made it many times. My family loves it! It's absolutely delicious as written, however, sometimes I add some smoked pork chop as well. I serve with a good crusty bread and Beer'n Brat Horseradish Mustard! The mustard is essential to this recipe. Thank you Edna for an awesome recipe. :)"

"I rediscovered this recipe because I printed it from the TOH's web site in May 2008 (that was before I found out that I could have put it in "my recipes" file. I had made it then for a church's pot luck dinner & it was totally consumed! I also wrote on it in red, " EXCELLENT"! I am again making it for an Easter Dinner tomorrow for gathering of my family. Lucky me I came across it."
