This is another one of those recipes I found handwritten on the back of an envelope in my junk drawer, so it could've come from anywhere. It's a nice change of pace from just sauteeing summer squash in butter, and it's simple and quick for when it's really too hot to cook.
I got this from the Louie's Backyard cookbook, but being me I halved it and tweaked it and now it's almost like my own. They get all the credit for the base recipe, though, since I would never have thought to make them if I hadn't bought them accidentally. One thing I learned...you really do need them to be almost completely black to get the full flavour. I did some that were mostly yellow and they just weren't as good.
I was assigned the "cheese and crackers" duty for the family parties last year, and this one was one of three everyone wanted the recipe for. Originally it came from a checkout-lane cookbook, but I adapted it some and we like it better.
Why is it called Scooter? I have no earthly idea, that's just what was written on the top of the page when I pulled this out of a book I bought at a secondhand store. This is another one you cannot eat if you're watching your weight, but it's deliciously decadent.
