“This is a recipe that was given to me by a friend's Mother when I visited her in Mobile, Alabama. I fell in love with it, and made it for my family for Christmas that year. They all loved it, too, and it has become part of our Christmas dinner for over 25 years now! It's delicious, easy and I hope you'll enjoy it, too. You may want to double the recipe - it goes fast!”
