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.

Great stuff! Sweet, sour and tangy. This is terrific by itself or over mashed potatoes. I used reduced-fat turkey kielbasa to save some fat calories. I'll be making this again. Thanx!
