Gator Bait

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Queen of Everything

This is from the cookbook Gator Championship recipes. This is a cookbook of recipes by Florida Gator fans and master tailgaters. My Aunt Yvonne gave me the book as a wedding present and introduced me to this yummy snack. The book attributes the recipe to "...Vida Alexander, a Goal-liner from 1979 until her death in 1995."

When I saw this recipe, I knew I had to make it. I have been a life long FL Gator fan & I am a proud member of the Gatornation! I have made a similar dish with Mozzarella Cheese. These were so yummy & were gobbled right up. Thanks for posting, this is a great dish to take to a cookout or party. Made for My 3 Chefs 2009.
