    I scaled this down considerably to feed 20 people for a party at a friend's house. Even though there was other food there to eat, my dish went fast! People were getting seconds and one guy even took a third helping!!!!! I ut up carrots, potatoes, rutabagas and cabbage to go with it. I left that party with an empty dish! I think that calls for the highest rating I can give it.  -  21 Mar 2012  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
