This tasted deliciously German! This goes great with a side dish that can sop up the sauce such as mashed potatoes, rice, or spaetzle. Thanks, kellychris! Made for Unrulies Under the Influence, ZWT6.

This is an amazing dish! I was panicing because I went from store to store around my little, country town and could not find hazlenuts anywhere! I ended up substituting almonds and boy were they good. My husband ate until he popped! This will be a must make recipe in our house from now on! Made for ZWT6

Nice change of pace for ham. I had some leftover ham that I sliced up for this. I also liked how easy it was. Thanks kellychis for sharing. Made by an Unruly Under the Influence for ZWT6 Zingo.
