    FlemishMinx's Note:

    This is a cajun recipe that I originally found somewhere on the 'net but have made some modifications. I serve this as a side-dish, but it could probably be used as a main dish as well. Recipe is very spicy, feel free to adjust to your own preference.

      DH and I loved it! I reduced the amount of butter by half and instead of the peppers I used Emeril Lagasse's Essence #14372. After I had the ramekins under the broiler I remembered that I had not added the Tobasco and we didn't miss it. It had enough zip. I served this as a main dish with a side salad.
