"Very easy and tasty!!!!"

MY REVIEW

"The first time I made these, I thought they were strange. Now, well they're still a bit strange, but SO DELICIOUS! Lol. It's so much easier than breading or making a batter. I've also baked these too, to make them healthier. I spray a cookie sheet with non stick cooking spray and roll them around a little bit. They bake up nicely, but they are, of course, much tastier when fried. Great recipe!"
