I haven't eaten these in years and decided to make this recipe based on the ingredients/spices. I was very pleased. The cornmeal gave extra texture to the coating and the garlic and red pepper kicked up the flavor. These are excellent served with hot sauce. Thanx for sharing your recipe!

This is the way I make them when I have buttermilk handy. I think it is the best way- the buttermilk and cornmeal add a lot of flavour and texture. VERY YUMMY !!
