If there is a food that looks like an exploding roman candle this is it. In addition to the edible standards of this past patriotic weekend, The Southerner and Ant showed up equipped with some sausage, shredded cheese and a box of Bisquick. Not only do these little explosions pack a punch of flavor but, they take about 6 minutes to mix and only double that to cook. An adaptation from one of The Southerner’s mom’s recipes, this bowl of bursts hit the table with as much gusto as the Macy’s firework finally. A versatile little wonder, useful as a snack, a dinner side or even a breakfast, we packed away a good half dozen for the short work week ahead. I already fortified yesterday morning’s drive with two and have another two ready for a quick pre-meeting pop. As I finalize our Cleopatra Jones menu I might have to find a place for these little gems.
