I made this several years ago and my family loved it. I was thinking of what appetizer I could make for Thanksgiving and this was the first thing that came to mind. I searched for it in my Food.com recipe box and coudn't find it. I am glad I found it! Thanks for the great recipe! I can't believe I didn't rate it years ago.
