Recipe Summary

Side Dish
Slow Cooked
Potato, Seafood
I got this recipe a few years ago from the owners of a local grocery/convenience store. I would go there often for their delicious plate lunches, boudin and cracklins. I told them I was writing a new cookbook for meals that could be cooked in a rice cooker, namely, "Rice Cooker Meals: Fast Home Cooking for Busy People." It just so happened that a side dish they were serving that day was cooked in her "Hitachi." (She has never called it a rice cooker, it's always "my Hitachi.") She told me how she did it, so I experimented with it in my rice cooker and it came out great the first time. So when I was writing my cookbook "Slow Cooker Meals: Easy Home Cooking for Busy People," I converted the recipe to work in the slow cooker.
