Recipe by

Here is another recipe that can be made while you're at the track or camping or anywhere that you have limited resources. I try to have all my ingredients measured and put into small Rubbermaid/Tupperware containers and organized in storage containers with all the other ingredients for a specific meal. On a side note: I like clams so I also make this using canned baby clams as an additional ingredient.
