When I was young, my mother made this recipe for us. Recently, I was going through her cookbook collection and found it. Now I make this tasty, fun appetizer for my own family and enjoy mixing the old memories with new ones. —Jeanne Herda, Burnsville, Minnesota

Super easy and very tasty! Even my kids loved them. I did also use about half bread crumbs in place of the cornflake crumbs and seasoned it to our liking.
