In 1989 when we first developed the concept and process to season peanuts in the shell, we knew it would be a hit. And were we right! These tasty treats are loved across the country by a wide range of customers. Starting with the finest jumbo Virginia style peanuts and using our unique method of in-the-shell seasoning, we we have reinvented the peanut.

A second recipe for Flounder that may be prepared at home is listed for your pleasure:


3 Slices bacon
Butter or margarine -- melted
1 6oz. pkg. herb stuffing mix
1/4 cup Finely chopped onion
2 tablespoons Sniped parsley

For stuffing, cook the bacon til crisp. Drain, reserve the drippings. Crumble bacon; set aside.
Measure drippings, then add enough melted margarine to equal 1/4 cup.
Prepare stuffing mix according to package directions, except use the dripping mixture instead of plain butter and add onion with the water. Stir in bacon and parsley. Cool about 15 minutes.
For rolls, cut fillets lengthwise in half. Lay 2 pieces end to end, overlapping the thinner ends. Repeat with remaining fillets. Place 1/3 cup stuffing onto one end of each pair of pieces. Roll fish around stuffing. Secure with wooden toothpicks.
Place rolls upright in a 12x 7 1/2x2inch baking dish. Brush with additional butter. Bake in a 375* oven 20 minutes or until done.
