This is an easy sauce to compliment most holiday meats. From Ham to Turkey, it works with everything. I've changed it up from the original Butterball recipe, substituting grapes with craisins and chicken bouillon for the meat juices from cooking meat, except lamb. It's a wonderful addition to any left over turkey or ham sandwiches, too!
