Great recipe. Great beautiful sandwich. I did use lower sodium bacon and turkey bacon. I also used light Miracle Whip. I am from Chicago originally and it was a staple in my house. Husband loved it for our dinner tonight. He said it's a keeper. I can see adding potato salad as my side dish. This is great when you don't want a super heavy dinner especially...

Superb! Made this for the first time since we were doing a small group for Thanksgiving. My only change was I used turkey Italian sausage and everything turned out splendid. I did go to you tube to get a quick tutorial on how to roll a turkey breast. I bought 2 turkey breasts. The butcher unfortunately removed the skin but they did a great job de-boning...

I too am glad I read the reviews. I reduced the sugar by 1/2 cup and found it still sweet but very delicious. Since I did not shred my cabbages too much, much of the dressing was absorbed. Hubby immediately said "This is good honey" 2 seconds after this hit his taste buds. Will be adding this to the keeper pile and will try next time with 1/4 "

Hubby said this was a keeper. I too did it in a crock pot. It came out fork tender. Unlike other crock pot recipes, the chicken was not mushy tasting. I did add a water/cornstarch mixture to the salsa in the crock pot to make it thicker. I also sautéed some onions in a pan just to add even more texture. Just add some Spanish rice and...

Even with a little improvising, this is a wonderful holiday dessert. I was challenged on finding the dried fruit. I used dried cranberries, dried apricots and dried cherries which are not candied. I also used Pillsbury crossaint rolls. Put them all together with the whiskey sauce Oh My Goodness do you have a wonderful dessert. I hope to make this "

I did not realize this was going to be a crisp cookie. I did make 1 colossal mistake. I put the cookie balls too close together and ended up with a "sheet" of cookies rather than individual cookies. I used a small glass to make them round. Not sure if I will make a again. Just a soft cookie kinda girl.""

This receipe requires a lot of your time. My onions burned very quickly and had to do a new batch. It also seemed I did not have enough sauce so I had to make more to try to cover the beans.

These just did not have the guilty taste of eating cookie dough. They were not very sweet.
