I first tasted this recipe three years ago at a picnic. My friend made it as her covered dish and it was a hit with the crowd. I now make it as my covered dish when I go to picnics. It holds up well in a crockpot at the "warm" setting and reheats nicely too. Only once did I go to a picnic and find a covered dish similar to this one... this recipe was much tastier and disappeared first!
