Old-Fashioned "Steak" Fingers (Husband's Favorite)

Gail Welch


I used to work at the Dairy Queen many years ago. This is the way we did our steak fingers for the Steak Finger baskets. They were made up ahead and kept in the freezer and cooked when ordered. These are delicious with Texas Toast, cream or brown gravy and mashed potatoes or french fries with ketchup.
