I found this dish in a Southern Living Christmas cookbook and made it for my husband's birthday dinner a couple of years ago. Since then, it has become one of our favorite holiday dishes--eaten for both Thanksgiving and Christmas! This past year, we invited our neighbors over to celebrate Christmas with us and this was what we had, served alongside balsamic green beans, a potato gratin, and some lovely wheat rolls. It is not as time consuming as a first glance at the instructions make it appear to be. Part of the prep can be done ahead of time and making the sauce is easy and goes fairly fast. And, the gentleman at our local wine store said that a dry cooking sherry can work as a suitable substitute for the madeira wine, which can run a little on the pricey side.
