MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 23, 2012

I got mixed reviews on these. Personally, I thought they were almost addicting. I loved the little crunch.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 26, 2011

i think i did something wrong because it was hard to get this to stick together and it was crumbly. however, after cooking, it stuck together really well and was very delicious. i would definitely make this again!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 30, 2010

People always gobble these up when I baked them. I see them try them not really knowing what they are and come back for a couple more! I like to make them up and freeze the balls before baking, then when we want something savory, its as quick as heating up the oven to have nibbles! GREAT STUFF
