I have made this - not sure if my recipe is the same or not but I love it as a nice dessert type dressing!

My mother made this casserole to serve with ham. Her recipe was not the light version.

What an interesting and delicious sounding casserole. This would be great to serve at a brunch. I'd like to invite you to stop by and link it up at Sweets for a Saturday #10. http://sweet-as-sugar-cookies.blogspot.com/2011/03/sweets-for-saturday-10.html
