"These are a HUGE hit with my family and friends! I followed the previous posters suggestions and added salt, pepper, and hot sauce to the egg/milk mixture. Also made some coated in crushed French onion Sun Chips--which the adults liked even better than the BBQ!"

"So quick and easy and delicious. Definitely something I could whip together on busy weekdays. Next time I may try with some hot sauce in the egg like someone else suggested, but they are definitely perfect as they are... Moist and crunchy. Tasted like I grilled them on the grill but didn't! I love them! Thank you."

"I made this twice using BBQ chips. I did not salt/pepper the first time. Thought that it need a little kick. So next time I intend on putting a little hot sauce in the milk/egg mixture. I shared this with friends and they thought they were good."
