Mudbug, I looked through mine to try to answer Audeo & I found the menu, but couldn't find a recipe for Soules a la Orly.

Sorry Audeo, I tried. I'll keep looking, I may have overlooked it.

Much obliged!

I'm fairly sure it isn't a typo either. But I know a "soleus" is a calf muscle...

I do love a mystery!

Maybe our Louisiana gal in residence, southerncook, has a clue... I'd bet that someone on this board will enlighten us by tomorrow morning!
