I know it’s been a while, but I thought I’d share a great side dish I made over the holidays.

I made it for 2 Christmas dinners because it is so good and so easy. I found it in a Food & Wine holiday suggested recipes email. The butter alone is worth making this recipe, we used the extra butter for rolls & it was delicious!
