I saw this prepared on the Doctor Oz TV show, when he had Paula Deen as a guest. Her challenge was to make a couple of her favorite dishes with half the fat and half the calories of the originals. This one went way below the half-way mark, and looked so good I decided to make it tonight.

This was a great recipe, and thanks to Paula Deen and Dr. Oz for helping us keep our Southern heritage along with our health!
