My mother has made this for longest time and it was only after my husband said "I love this!" did I ever get the recipe. I am posting as my old recipe card (in her handwriting) is just about worn out and I don't ever want to lose this recipe.

I loved this recipe! I didn't have any raisins on hand, so I used dried cranberries instead. The sauce was a little too sweet for me, so I will make it without the sauce next time. Great recipe!
