Recipe by Judith Fraser
This dish is appealing to all. I got this from my sister last Christmas who made a double batch and was a huge hit at the buffet table.

I made this recipe for a party. I didn't add the ground beef because there were vegetarians at the party. I made 2 trays and they were gone before I could even taste it! I am told it was awesome. It was simple to make and I plan on using the recipe again.
