Here’s another great recipe from one of our customers, Julie Keeran.  It’s actually her husband, Mark’s, recipe but she got him to share it with us.  This is a quick-to-make versatile dish.  Add a tomato sauce and pasta for a trip to Italy.  With a cream sauce and some mushrooms you can make a stroganoff.  Stick some toothpicks in them and you have a really tasty party appetizer for the holiday season.  Enjoy!
