i invented this recipe several years ago when i was involved in music promotion in the area, and we had bands coming through and staying at our house at least once a week! lots were vegetarian, and even more were not from the south, so i wanted to give them something satisfying, and a taste of my home. but i needed to keep the meat eaters happy too. this was the result. whenever i make this now, my roommates call their friends, and people just "happen" to drop by, just in time for dinner!
there are many secrets to this recipe, but one of which is the specific meat substitute used... it's awesome!
all of these measurements are approximate.
