I first made this recipe for Thanksgiving in 1984, when I clipped it from a Family Circle magazine. I have made it every year for the past 27 years, and it always gets huge RAVES from family, friends, and co-workers!

I planned on making this this year, remembering how good it was, but when I pulled out my old recipe the entire left side with all the amounts was crumbled away! Thanks for posting this 7 years ago!!!
