"These are somewhat similar to the way my Mother made hers. However, I like them a little thicker. Will do next time. My Mother always had them as a meal, but they are also good as a side dish. Will make again."
"these are really good. my kids like them for breakfast as well as for dinner"
"Simple to make,especially with a food processor. I added chives and made them a little thicker the second batch"
"These were really good! We liked them best when I made them thicker. Will use less oil next time. I made a double batch and had lots of left-overs. They were great warmed on a plate in the oven."
"I also like chives or finely chopped green onions for little difference.We love these as a meal or side dish and they are great leftover. They warm up nicely in the microwave or toaster oven."
