Recipe by Chief Teer
This is a old fire house favorite from Lafayette Regional Airport Fire Department in Louisiana. I worked there for three years and we cooked all the time. Here's to all the good times and the great food the guys taught me to cook. So here is one of my favorite recipes, I'd like to share.
