this is one of our favorite summer time meals!! We have a big turkey fryer that we make this in, so clean up is much easier. Dump it on the picnic table and add some ice cold beer! We do add more old bay because we like the spice.
This is a great recipe. We like to serve it to our guest from "up north". I make sure to tell them there are no frogs and it's not stew. The kids love it when you throw it out on the table on newspaper. They don't know what to think--it's not the usual where you have to keep yourself clean. The only diffierence is I use turkey sausage and I don't really measure the Old Bay. Just dump some in the turkey fryer! Easy.
My mom grew up in the Low Country and I always request this dish when I go home. The only thing she does differently is adds some quartered onions in with the potatoes and skips the butter at the end (then we just butter the corn). It is so good!!! Make sure you use Old Bay---there really is no comparison!
