The first Thanksgiving my husband and I were married, we had everyone over for thanksgiving. This recipe was born out of wanting to change some things up and have something a little different. It is very hard for me to measure things out because I am not a measuring kind of cook - I eyeball everything, but this is as close as I can get! This has become my requested dish for every family function we go to because everyone loves it sooo much!
