Recipe by Redneck Epicurean

This recipe came from Paula Deen's newest cookbook "Celebrates". This is a great cookbook because it's set up in menus for various events over the year. This one is in the Graduation Potato Bar menus. So, if you're setting up a potato bar, this is a great addition. There are several others too, that I am also posting.
