Shrimp Po' Boys

   Hello  my blogging  family  and friends , this  dish I am so very proud  of .Why you ask , anyone can make  Po' Boys ? Maybe  so  , but these  are  very , very special  . I  made the very  tempting  rolls  that was posted  on a fellow  blogger  site last Wednesday ,the aroma was  oh  just  heavenly  and the taste  was  even better . I  doubled  his recipe  because my  bunch is larger than his , 24 rolls  and  not one left ,  but a lot of the food  was  left . My kids  call him  'That Man' sure can cook, after you taste  his  rolls  I think you will agree . I was  making Po' Boys  for my post , I decided to make  his rolls  into  buns , I  shaped them into  buns  and  cooked  them in a 9X13-inch  pan . Follow the link  over to John and Mrs. K R , remember  you  can't take them off the screen   but you will be tempted . So  hop on over  to  say hi to John at  Kitchen Riffs .
