Recipe by Bobtail
This is from a cookbook titled "Island Born and Bred". It is a collection of recipes from Hatteras Island, NC. We affectionately call them "High Tiders". They have a distinctive brogue when they speak and it is music to your ears. I have not made this recipe myself, but have had it at a cookout. I found it to be really delicious! I have guessed at the number of servings. Hope you enjoy!
