I revised this recipe a little and added 1 tsp. pepper & 1 1/2 tbsp. sugar to get more of a sweet and pepper taste. I also tried the variation of adding canned corn, and they came out yum-to-the-me. My husband LOVED the first batch I made and served with tartar sauce. Next time I will try adding the variation of onions and bacon too.
