My husband loved this dish. From reading the list of ingredients I was really excited to make it. It was a little too heavy for me. I used it as a main dish and I think it's supposed to be more of a side dish that you bring to pot lucks and such. I can see how it is so popular at family gatherings. It is meant to be eaten in smaller portions I think.
