I cannot begin to tell you how amazing this recipe's sauce is. I first made these for a potluck dinner party last year. They were a *huge* hit. I began making them for other potluck events. Now ...

Awesome, will definitely use again and again!!!!! Have noticed that several people haven't found the red current jelly this calls for. If you have a Kroger store in your area-they almost always ...
