Not even gonna lie. I ripped this off Foodnetwork/ Aaron McCargo Jr.

I did make this last year for Thanksgiving. We don't even like cranberry sauce, but I saw him make it on TV and it just looked good. The boys LOVED it. I used the left overs on biscuits and waffles. It is a keeper and can be made several days in advance.
