Looking for the recipe for their conch chowder and bimini bread.  
If you could please. 

Hi Loribeth,

I just got this from a former Ernie's employee.


I worked at Ernie’s  78-80. I worked upstairs in the patio. From what I remember 
their Bimini bread was real simple. They used Richs’ frozen white bread dough. 
They let it thaw until you could roll it out into about a 12 inch circle then 
sprinkled it with a liberal amount of white sugar. Then they rolled it like a 
jelly roll, tucked the ends under and put it in a loaf pan to proof then bake. 
They brushed the top with melted margarine. It was best served warm from the oven.

I hope it helps. I make it when I make conch chowder. It is exactly like Ernies. 
I also worked at a place called Tugboat Annie’s and they made it the same way.
