    Dreamer in Ontario's Note:

    This recipe was found in a wonderful book called The Bluegrass Music Cookbook and was contributed by Marie Cox of the Cox Family, a Bluegrass music group from Cotton Valley, Louisiana. I've tweaked it only in very small ways from the original and lowered the oil substantially. The original recipe called for 1/2 cup cooking oil. If you're not worried about the fat content you could go with the original amount.

      Made this for Spring PAC 2011 and it was wonderful. I cut the recipe in half and used a little more oil and added some jalapenos. I have a meyer lemon tree so I used that for the lemon which adds a little more sweetness than a regular lemon.....delicious! Will make this again for sure. Thank you for submitting.

      Oh yum, this was so very good, an excellent meal prepared in no time at all! I stuck with the 2 tblsps oil, and added slightly more red pepper (bit of a wild shake of the wrist!!) One of those meals so easy to prepare midweek that gives you a relaxed weekend feeling! I served over spaghetti, just felt like pasta! Thanks Dreamer, for another winner!

      Yummy! I made this with the recommended 2 Tbsp oil, using vegetable oil. I also added some chopped jalapeno for a nice zing. Definitely do not leave out the lemon, it so enhances this recipe. Great recipe, very New Orleans. Thanks for sharing it. :)
