For any Utah residents reading this recipe, it will probably sound familiar. It is a dead ringer for a dish at a very popular restaurant here in Utah. As I've mentioned before, I love to make restaurant knock offs in my own kitchen - we're able to eat really eat yummy food for a fraction of the price. You can see the recipe here.
