    I turned this into a crockpot recipe by quartering the red potatoes (skins on) and placing the ingredients in the crockpot mixed w/ a can of 98 percent fat free cream of mushroom soup. We're calling this twist 'Hungarian Flag Dinner" because it reminds me of a dish my Hungarian G-ma used to make. - 8/16/07
