When I was fortunate enough to attend the cooking demonstration at the 2008 Louisiana Book Festival at Baton Rouge, one of the ladies in the audience asked for this recipe and I promised it would be in ten next book. So here it is....it's great on meatloaf or cream cheese, a real multi-tasker recipe.
