This is a recipe that I have recieved many compliments on. It is also one of my boyfriend's favorite recipes. When we first met, he (a butcher) was very much into Beef and of course, being a southern bread man - fried foods.
Well, that all changed when he met me. I enjoy an occassionl steak and I love my fried chicken and catfish, but I also reminded him of "OTHER" great recipes...
