Redneck Epicurean's Note:
This is kinda like etouffee..sort of. I thought it was delish sounding when I heard about it. I have tweaked it a bit from the original, since I hate hard-boiled eggs and didn't have any cooking sherry. I replaced the sherry with some Old Bay (which I have just discovered in '05) and didn't replace those nasty eggs with anything. The recipe calls for a pound of tomatoes. Since I usually make this in the fall/winter, I use DM's home-canned tomatoes in some juice. I really like this - some Southern comfort food at its best.
