This recipe was in The Columbus Dispatch several years ago, submitted by a reader. She wrote that it was from the Inn at Honey Run in Millersburg, OH. I made it also, and it is really good as stated by the latest reader who posted it... Hope you enjoy it too!

Great ingredients but turned out bland. I don't think it was horrible, but it needed a little more zing - and I could tell when I made the "crust". I chopped fresh sage and added a little more pepper but it still needed more. I think it actually would be very good if a little brown sugar was thrown in the crust and also served with gravy. I'll try it one more time.
