Recipe by Mrs. Hughes
From All You magazine. I haven't tried this one yet, but it looks good to me. It says you can use honey or orange marmalade in place of apricot jam, or a flavored mustard. And it says it's good with a tablespoon or two of chopped fresh rosemary or thyme. I don't know why recipezaar and the magazin show such a HUGE difference in nutritional information, but the recipe shows: per serving: 310 calories, 13g fat (2g Sat.), 60mg chol., 0g fiber, 21g Pro., 28g Carb., 577mg Sod.
