I don't know when or where this recipe came from but I got it from my mother and have made it for many many years at Thanksgiving and Christmas.

You can make this a few days in advance keeping it covered in the refrigerator.

For an amazing next day sandwich, turkey, stuffing (or dressing), cream cheese and cranberry sauce!
