Ya know, when a chef lives in south Louisiana a chef's got to do what a chef's got to do. I added green bell pepper, celery and green onions. I couldn't disguise them in my photo so I have to own up to it. This is absolutely a delightful and company-worthy dish.

Just the recipe I was looking for! Our favorite restaurant in Highlands, NC serves this dish. With the addition of mushrooms, a little vidalia onion, and a dash or two of worchestshire, it turned out so perfect my hubby raved and gave this one 10 stars. QUICK, EASY, DELICIOUS

Quite good. Not too hard. Cut it in half and it still made plenty. Thank you.
