I got this out of my (wedding gift) 1973 Betty Crocker Cookbook. I have been making it for years. My mother in law is German and she can't believe I didn't get this out of a German cookbook. I have to make it ever year at Thanksgiving for my Step Dad (he loves it). I like to prepare this the day before and reheat it. The flavors blend together so much better. Hope you enjoy!
