Why I Love This Recipe

My dad made this almost every Thanksgiving growing up. It was different from our usual Better Homes and Gardens-inspired fare, with its combination of curry, coriander, and red pepper, and thus was worthy of a special occasion. Everyone always wanted seconds, so he doubled the recipe, and even then, we still wanted more. Several years ago, it passed the test kitchen of the Fort Lauderdale Junior League and was published in their cookbook, Paradise Served. Enjoy!
