Kittencal's Harvard Beets

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

Since I make this for dinner parties this is a double recipe, if you are serving a very large dinner party you might want to double and serve it in two bowls, or you may reduce by half if desired, the mustard powder is only optional I always like to add in for an extra kick, 1 teaspoon onion powder is also great to add also --- this makes a wonderful addition to a holiday dinner :)

This recipe was wonderful! I'm the only one in my family who eats beets and I usually just eat them out of the can! I cut the recipe down to one serving, which was perfect for one can of beets. This is very easy to put together and the flavors blend beautifully. Thanks Kitten, for a great recipe that made me feel like I was spoiling myself, for a change.
