This was originally introduced to our holiday menu by my sister and was an instant success, quickly to become a tradition at holiday meals. I submitted the recipe to a fund-raising group for a cookbook (with my sister's name on it - I promise it's true) but her name was left out when published and my name was on it as contributor. I bought the cookbooks for family members and when my sister saw her recipe with my name on it, needless to say my sister never let me live it down.
