Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
My son Kevin introduced me to this dish one Christmas Eve several years ago. He had made it for himself when he was unable to make it home for Christmas due to his work schedule. It can be made earlier in the day then kept warm in the crockpot while the family is gathering in the home or attending Christmas Eve services.
