This is my father-in-laws recipe. My husband has raved about it since we got married and so I thought I would share it.

Top Review by Muffin Goddess

Picked this for Pick a Chef 2006 -- I made this as an appetizer for dinner last night, and DH was thrilled! We used to get the poppers at Longhorn Steakhouse before they stopped making them, which DH was so bummed about. His eyes lit up when he bit into one of these, because they reminded him of the Longhorn ones. We'll definitely be having these again. Thanks for posting!
