Hi again everyone,

I hope you had a chance to look over the Sage Stuffing recipe I posted yesterday, because here comes another favorite side.

This is my second favorite side dish and it is a little on the sweet side, (no not pie, that’s later). My husband loves this one too. We were fortunate to have this at a Ruth’s Chris Steak House and it was a bite of heaven. 

You know what I mean, the bite that you savor, close you eyes and you are whisked away to another planet just for a brief moment. It’s that bite of heaven.

It really should be a dessert instead of a side.


Wait until you see the ingredients for this one; a lot of butter and sugar, but once you take your first bite you will be amazed and forget about the calories.

I was fortunate to find the recipe and I have been making it ever since. Give it a try.
