The faculty where DH teaches has frequent potlucks. Lois often brings this tasty dish and it is always well received. It is also an easy work/school week supper that my family enjoys.

Very good recipe! The ketchup adds just enough background flavor to keep it interesting. I did sub 1/2 tsp caraway seeds for the dill, as a personal preference.
