This is a great Southern-Traditional recipe that is great served with ham, pork, chicken or even Holiday meals. Very simple to prepare and so very good!

These were delicious, easy and went wonderful with the rest of my Christmas dinner. I halved it since there are only two of us and it all turned out perfectly. It tasted even better heated up the next day. Thanks Bev for a wonderful recipe!
