In our town there is a little restaurant called Cane River Bar & Grill that my sister, Cynthia, and I love to go to. When we go we order this appetizer. Since I loved them so much I've always been on the lookout for a recipe for them. I found this little recipe a few months back and had to make it my own. It originally called for hot sauce, but I leave it out.
