Today is Foodie Friday! It is hosted by Designs by Gollum. Be sure to go by and see all of the participants of this most Tasty day of the week!
Today's recipe came to me by way of my friend, Mississippi girl, Janet. She made this one time at a neighborhood block party. This dish IS a party in a pan! Enjoy!
