Recipe Notes

My family  loves the many different Thanksgiving Side Dishes, but this one is a family favorite. My daughter made it for me and I enjoyed it so much I made it a few months after the holiday. Why wait a year for something so delicious? I bake the 2 loaves and freeze one for when I have company.
