Easy and tasty recipe that I crave during the holiday season. Makes the kitchen smell wonderful. Great served along roasted chicken or smoked pork chops.

I made this for a potluck tonight and got many rave reviews. I didn't have enough maple syrup on hand and had to substitute part fake stuff but it was still good. I am anxious to try it with all real.
