This is the first time I've passed along this treasured recipe. It's a hand-me-down from my mother, so it's always been special to me. It's so delicious, and I'm truly happy to share it with my fellow Reminisce recipe.

"I tried this recipe for the first time last year! It was incredibly simple and yet so delicious! This is a wonderful side dish for our Christmas dinner which always has ham as the main entrée. I was pulling the recipe out of my virtual recipe box for a repeat performance this year and realized I never wrote a review. This will definitely become a traditional side dish for my family's Christmas dinner. Thank you for sharing! =D"

"I felt like I was taking a risk in making this strange sounding recipe-- but what a payoff! The children and the adults at the dinner table gobbled it up."

"This is the weirdest recipe I have ever tried. It got better the more I ate, but it is still an odd combination of textures and flavors. Must be a regional recipe."
