This is a recipe I've made many times for parties and family gatherings, and shared many times, because someone always asks for the recipe. This was in Taste of Home in 1999, posted by Michelle Grigsby,Beavercreek, Ohio. I often make them the day before or the morning of the big gathering and pop them in the oven right before serving.
