This is my hubby's favorite grilled dinner. Lots of butter and yumminess. Paula Dean would be so proud of us!! LOL. This morning I took the leftovers and warmed them up in the microwave and added a fried egg for breakfast. Very tasty!!

Oh boy... this is going to be on your menu all summer! It's really tasty and filling. Plus, cooking it on the grill means you don't have to heat up the kitchen on a hot day. We chose to add potatoes to this summer grilling recipe and they were delish. Pasta or rice would be lovely too. An easy summer dinner. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
