I came up with this recipe after a friend of mine and I went to lunch at a Texas Road House Restaurant and we had their "Rattlesnake Bites". We liked them so much that I just had to try and recreate the recipe. Since then my friend made them at a family cook off but added the bacon to the recipe and won by a land slide! Hope you like them as much as we all do.
