Quick, easy and tasty. I added a sprinkling of garlic powder and pepper. A reviewer said they had a problem with sticking to the dish. Might I suggest using a non stick vessel. I used my non stick, oven going fry pan. A little nudge and out they came. :)

I have made this off of the original recipe which was from Epicurious and that original recipe had 1/4 stick butter melted which eliminates the need for any kind of cooking spray.. play with different spices too. I have jazzed it up with some old bay before for a low country boil, added rosemary to it etc.. It is a great recipe to play with. All the other measurements were correct.

I ate sooooo much. I'd better go have some chocolate and recover.
