Bigwheel, spiedies orginated here,

Recipes from the 2006 Spiedie Fest & Balloon Rally, held anually in Binghamton, NY.

Spiedies (marinated cubes of meat placed on skewers) are best prepared on a charcoal grill and served on sliced Italian bread.

Chicken Spiedies

2 tablespoons of fresh basil or more to suit your taste
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning, this is a blend of seasonings, found in the spice section of supermarkets
1 1/2 tablespoons of salt
1 teaspoon of red pepper flakes
My own addition would be 1/4 to 1/2 cup of Madeira or Marsala wine.
Save some marinade for basting during the cooking process.

Marinate chicken one to three days.
Cook over charcoal or gas grill. Do not overcook.
Serve on sliced Italian bread or roll.

1/4 cup of Taylor Golden Sherry or Marsala
1/2- teaspoon of mint
3 tablespoons of garlic chopped

1/4- cup of fresh lemon juice
1-tablespoon Kosher salt

Good Lawdy Miz Claudie..we done struck gold here. Old ex Binghamton IBM raised boy been trying to teach us how to cook em down here...cept he cheats and sends off for the jugs of Speedie juice from the place that invented em. Know it starts with an F or a V but it sounds Spanish..and supposed to be Eyetalian. I been trying to tell him mine is mo betta than his even though he cheats. Should be able to blow his bloomers plumb off with this little bonanza of authentic ammo. Thanks.
