MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 2, 2010

This recipe deserves the ultimate credit! I doubled the recipe to suit my needs and the results were delicious. I did add cheddar cheese and used real eggs. The only advice I would give would be to assemble them right before you need them to prevent soggy bread. Again, great recipe and thanks for sharing!!!
