Let me start by saying that Thanksgiving and Christmas are my favorite holidays. I love the decorations and the laughter, the smells and tastes, and most of all I enjoy the joy of gathering around the table and sharing a meal with friends and family.
We all have our traditional dishes that we love and cherish — although that love might not be universal. I love green bean casserole, but am not wild about the candied yams. For others I know, that is reversed, so in order to create a new option I worked up this dish and the test tasters were very happy with it. The idea is to have a hot side dish that is savory, but not the usual option.
