This has become a Thanksgiving tradition in our home. Our grown daughter always insists I make a triple batch so there are leftovers for a day or two afterwards.

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.

I took this to Christmas dinner and everyone loved it! My mother-in-law, who is a great cook said that I must bring it again!

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.
