I have eaten this dish many times, but have not made it. It is delicious. I have been thinking of doing it in the crockpot and see if it is as good, but have not yet.

This recipe has been passed down to me by my husband's grandmother. I tried and true recipe. You won't be dissapointed in this recipe. Great for the slow coker.
