Would you believe out of all the recipes on Comfy in the Kitchen, THIS recipe is one of my absolute favorites? An excellent choice for a potluck or for blessing a busy family. Even better, you can make this in the morning and have one of your side dishes done when you put together a meal.

It's simple to make, sweet, savory, filling, naturally allergy friendly and ohhhh so good. A family recipe that was meant to share.
