"I made these for a brunch and everyone loved them. It's a delicious and unique flavor combination that's worth trying! I will definitely make again. (Oh, I used fresh basil and the aroma was heavenly.)"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 16, 2010

"This recipe was a hit with the kids as well as myself :) It has a fresh taste and the marmalade provides sweetness. I did serve with a small piece of butter on top, but it does not really need it.

Delicious :)"
