Notes

If you don’t have real butter, just substitute with margarine or country crock.  
If you don’t have either, substitute vegetable oil.
It is just fine to substitute the following for honey in an equal amount:  brown sugar, white sugar, molasses + 1 tsp white sugar. If you don’t have cinnamon, it’s fine to just leave it out.
Trust me, add just a pinch of the salt and pepper even if you think it doesn’t need it, you’ll be surprised how this makes it taste even better.
A tiny sprinkle of nutmeg is nice too if you have some.
If you need instructions for how to prepare this in the microwave, oven, crockpot/ slow cooker or frying pan, those instructions are listed in the post.
