Recipe by MadCity Dale

One of the first dishes to be served at IAN's Farm Market Cafe starting this summer at farmers markets in the Madison, Wisconsin area. Quick and easy to pick up 75% of the ingredients that morning at the market and to serve Brunch for vendors, participants, and customers. The directions incorporate some general instructions on "stepped up" preparation of some ingredients.
