This is really good! I have found it to only be about 4 servings but maybe that is just because we have had a hungry crown. Also, it tastes even better when you put sweet & spicy pecans as a topper. It really finishes it off. I found some good ones at These are great on top of this recipe because they have a great maple flavor while adding a little texture. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
