My mother made this for my wedding and so many people requested this recipe, even my mother in law! It's now my go to dish for the holidays. Last time I made this I forgot to buy sunflower seeds...

Used panko crumbs, pecans and pumpkin seeds. I think you could use any nuts and seeds. I used two Tbl of dried onion flakes.
